Lalu’s tirade against PM Modi continues, says remark on Dadri a ‘futile’ attempt

Patna: Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement over the Dadri lynching incident and the controversy surrounding the performance of Pakistani Ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali in Mumbai, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Wednesday said that his reaction was futile as it had come too late.

“I can’t understand how is this being called as ‘breaking silence’, how can you say that? First you go around attacking and killing people, then you wait, then you comment over it. How does that help?” Lalu told ANI here.

In an interview to the Anand Bazaar Patrika, Prime Minister Narendra Modi voiced his opinion clearly for the first time over the Dadri lynching and the Ghulam Ali row saying that they were ‘unfortunate’ incidents indeed, but the Centre could not be blamed as these issues were related to law and order and the concern of the state governments.

He also lashed out at the opposition accusing them of playing ‘politics of polarization’.
