Yoga guru Ramdev on Tuesday appealed to RJD president Lalu Prasad to act like an ideal "Yaduvanshi" and leave a sinful party to help Narendra Modi become prime minister of the country.
"Lalu aadarsh Yaduvanshi bane aur paapi party ka saath chhor kar Narendra Modi ko Pradhan Mantri banaye (Lalu should become an ideal Yaduvanshi and leave a wicked party to help Narendra Modi become PM)", Ramdev told reporters Bhagalpur, Bihar.
He also took a dig at chief minister Nitish Kumar for refusing to recognise him and reminded him that he had in recent past declared him as "Brand Ambassador of Bihar".
Describing Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal as "Nausikhiya" (amateur) and his austerity measures as "Dikhawa" (show), Ramdev said "He is talking of ending VIP culture when he himself has formed a government with the help of Congress which has given birth to the elite culture."
The yoga guru said he would campaign against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son and vice-president Rahul Gandhi in Rai Bareili and Amethi in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Stating that Modi would be a reliable PM, the yaga guru said he would launch a door to door campaign for Modi in different parts of the country from March 1.
Ramdev has been visiting the state as part of his 'Sampark Samvad' since Sunday.
