New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mohan Bhagwat over the ongoing reservation row, hinting that they were the ones who used to abuse former chief minister Karpoori Thakur.
“Modi and racist guru Bhagwat should tell as to who used to abuse socialist Karpoori Thakur?,” Lalu tweeted.
“Would the BJP and racist organisation like RSS, before opposing reservation, burn the books of their mentor Golwalkar, who was also against reservation, Dalits and backward people?” he said in another tweet.
“There is no difference between Anna ji, Mohan Bhagwat ji, Modi ji and Amit Shah. They all are anti-poor, anti-backward and anti-Dalit. They are insulting Baba Saheb Ambedkar, who fought for the inclusion of Dalit rights in the Constitution,” Lalu had said earlier in Patna.
Prime Minister Modi had mentioned Thakur, who had introduced reservation for the backward classes in 1978 when he was the chief minister, as “Jan Nayak” in his election speech in Samastipur on October 7.
Social activist Anna Hazare had earlier spoken out against reservation in the country and said that it was a threat to the nation as it has become ‘politically infected’.
