Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Thursday launched a blistering attack on Narendra Modi by calling the Prime Minister a bad omen for the country.
Addressing a function to mark 125th anniversary of dalit icon BR Ambedkar here, Lalu said the country has been suffering from drought and water crisis since the day Modi took oath as the PM.
He also sought a probe into assets of “high-profile” gurus and babas.
“Assets of all these ‘hi-fi’ saints should be probed,” Prasad said.
Describing Baba Ramdev as a “capitalist and industrialist of the country”, he said, “Earlier he used to praise Mulayam Singh Yadav but now he has gone to Narendra Modi and BJP.”
He also castigated Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravishankar for his recent comment that those who do not love the country should go out of it.
“On what basis he assessed that somebody does not love his country?” he asked.
“All these saints and babas are making fool of people in the garb of religion,” he said.
Attacking BJP and RSS, Prasad charged them with being “anti-dalit and anti-minorities”.
On Prime Minister launching “Gram Uday se Bharat Uday” on birth Anniversary of BR Ambedkar, the RJD chief said “It is aimed at the coming Uttar Pradesh election and an attempt to break into vote bank of BSP chief Mayawati.”
