Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday launched a blistering attack on former Chief Minister of Bihar Lalu Prasad Yadav over several issues and said that the RJD supremo has made entire society hostage to his family.
“This is not our language. He has made the whole of society hostage to his family. If Lalu Yadav goes to jail, then his wife will become CM, and then his son will become deputy CM,” he told ANI.

He further said that the RJD never worried about the Yadav community of the state who are most populous caste in Bihar.
“You have not worried about ‘Yadav Samaj’, but you only worried about your family. Yaduvanshis are respected members of society… ‘Kans Bole, Jo Bole’ BJP is the worshipper of Ram and Krishna…” he added.
Earlier on Tuesday, Lalu Yadav, while speaking at the Govardhan Puja ceremony organized in ISKCON temple, hit out at union minister Nityanand Rai over his allegations that the RJD supremo made his wife Rabri Devi the CM of Bihar, ignoring several capable leaders in his party and asked whether Rai’s wife would have held the position if not Rabri Devi.
“The Union Minister of State in Hajipur used to approach us to join our party. BJP had talked about making him the Chief Minister of Yadavs….He says that Lalu Yadav made Rabri Devi the Chief Minister. If Rabri Devi had not been made the Chief Minister, would I have made your wife the CM? (Agar Rabri Devi ko CM nahi banate to kya tumhari bibi ko banate). If Rabri Devi had not been there, RJD and our government would not have existed today. Nitish-Tejashwi government would not have been formed in Bihar if she had not held the CM position,” Lalu Yadav said.
The RJD chief was speaking after Nityanand Rai took a jibe at Lalu Prasad Yadav and said that the former CM side-lined several leaders including Jangdanand Singh and Rabri Devi became the CM of Bihar.
“When Lalu Yadav went to jail, PV Narasimha was the PM. Even when CBI filed the charge sheet, Narasimha’s government was there. When you were sentenced in 2013, there was Manmohan Singh i.e. Congress government. When you went to jail, why didn’t you make other Yaduvanshis leaders the CM? You made Rabri Devi the CM,” Rai said
