Lalu pounded by complaints in his blog
Lalu Yadav, who is the latest celebrity entrant in the world of blogging, is receiving suggestions by the bucketful on his blogpost and pounded by complaints against his Railways department too.
Some bloggers want to see the RJD strongman from Bihar act in films. There are some who would like to see the ebulient silver haired minister do something to lift the "confidence of Biharis."
While Lalu speaks of his fascination for actress Hema Malini and willingness to act in a film in his first blog and then touts railway's success story and gives his views on inflation in the second post, the RJD leader is cornered mainly by demands for better railway facilities.
SOSs too find their way with the minister's intervention being sought for confirmed accommodation in trains.
"Laluji railway par dhyan dijiye filmo mein sirf bandar naachte hai aur politician nahi aap rajniti pe dhyan dijiye," a reader comments tersely asking the minister to focus on politics and not to entertain the thought of taking to the celluloid.
Asha asks angrily in chaste Bhojpuri whether the reservation counters have been opened only for touts while appealing to the rail minister to protect the public from the tout menace.
Tanmoy from Kishnaganj too alleges that reservation counters there has turned into a den for touts.
There is also a complaint about bad quality of foodstuff being sold at Patna Junction.
Pranav Sahi demands that Patna station should be made better. "Charity begins at home. Patna Station should be made world class in all respects and I feel this is not asking for much... Make Patna Junction free from unauthorised vendors," he demands.
Ashok Kumar draws Lalu's attention towards bad condition of railway station in Mumbai. Another blogger highlights the bad condition of a Central school run by Railways in Mangalore ruing lack of furniture.
There are other concerns too. Amit Pranay wants Information Technology(IT) to come to Bihar in a big way. "Sir can't you see there is such a strong pool of Bihari politicians using IT to run their offices," questions Amit.
Kumar Gaurav asks Lalu, "Why people from Bihar are looked down upon specially in Maharashtra?"
However, quite a number of people do wish to see Lalu in films. Tilak Rishi dubs Lalu the biggest blockbuster arguing, "Your life and achievements can make the best script ever for a Bollywood movie. If made by Mani Ratnam, the maker of Guru, the film will be the biggest blockbuster ever."
Reader Bejon Misra comments, "Actors convert true stories into fiction and politicians convert fiction into true stories.....I am sure Shahrukh and you can make it happen as both of you are equally talented in creating fiction and true stories."
Dubai resident Puppy says, "I am very much waiting to see you with Shahrukh soon in a picture and if it release in Dubai I will be one of the first persons to see its first show."
