ANI Photo | “My statement is being twisted”: Misa Bharti clarifies her remark on PM Modi

Former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti on Friday clarified her remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that her statement was based on the verdict of the Supreme Court on electoral bonds.
Alleging that her statement was twisted, the RJD leader said to the media, “I made a remark on the verdict of Supreme Court on electoral bonds. I said that if our government comes to power, we will conduct an inquiry and punish the accused. My statement is being twisted.”
Misa Bharti further said that the ruling government does not have any issues to discuss for the Lok Sabha polls.
“The media is setting the agenda of BJP. Media should not set the agenda of the country, let politicians set the agenda, whether they are in power or in the opposition. BJP does not have any issues, they are not talking about unemployment, inflation, or farmers. When we talk about these issues, the Prime Minister says that we are doing appeasement politics,” she said.
Misa Bharti recently stirred controversy after she said that if the opposition-led INDIA Alliance comes to power, all BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would be put behind bars.
Hitting out at the BJP-led central government, Bharti had said, “We are talking about the implementation of MSP and he (PM Modi) sees appeasement in that. He always accuses our family of corruption whenever he arrives here (Bihar). If the people of this country give the INDIA alliance a chance (to form the government), then from PM Modi to BJP leaders, they will be behind bars.”
The RJD leader’s statement, which was made on Sunday, became a political flashpoint between the BJP and the RJD, as BJP leaders said that with her statement, Misa Bharti is making her father’s ‘pratigya’ laughable.
“With this statement, she is making her father’s ‘pratigya’ laughable,” BJP MP Sudhanshu Trivedi said.
BJP MP Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday slammed Lalu Prasad’s daughter for her remark on PM Modi and asked her to stop “daydreaming.”
“If you threaten the Prime Minister, action will be taken. Stop daydreaming, the results will be out on June 4th, and it will surpass 400,” the BJP leader said.
Ravi Shankar Prasad also warned her not to make such statements.
“What has happened to Misa Bharti? The woman’s father (Lalu Yadav) has been convicted in the fodder scam. I warn her not to make such statements. Your family is immersed in corruption,” he said.
Misa Bharti is contesting the 2024 Lok Sabha election from Pataliputra constituency against BJP candidate Ram Kripal Yadav, who defeated her in the last elections.
