Narendra Modi must be selling bloods and riots, not tea: Lalu Prasad

Lalu launched a scathing attack on Modi calling him a seller of blood and riots and not tea.

Lalu Yadav Highlighting his humble background Lalu said that he used to sell tea in Patna.

With Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi set to connect with people through a discussion over a cup of tea, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad on Wednesday expressed doubt over the former being a tea seller and stressed it was he who used to sell tea in his childhood in Patna.

“I used to sell tea with my elder brothers from a shop near the police quarters in the veterinary college area in my childhood days,” Prasad told reporters.

Highlighting his humble background, he said, “I used to sell tea and biscuits while studying in school.”

Prasad said he never deemed it necessary about highlighting his childhood days when he and his elder brothers had to sell tea for sustenance and also expressed doubt about the information floated by the BJP that Narendra Modi used to sell tea on trains.

“Woh chai kahan se bechega, woh to khoon bechta hoga ya danga bechta hoga (How can he sell tea, he must have been selling blood or riots),” the RJD chief said in his caustic remark on Modi.

The RJD has already applied for permission of a parallel rally at Muzaffarpur on March 3, when Narendra Modi is scheduled to address a rally in the same place.

                        what a comment from a person who has been convicted! does he think everything can be equated to his level of intelligence & action - like the cows that he keeps and its byproducts?

                          Lalu yadav has reason to challenge Narendra Modi,for CHAIWALLAH Tag. Modi is not only CHAIWALLAH who reached CM's Chair. LALU YADAV also sold CHAI in his childhood and later ruled bihar for 15 long years. So, CHAIWALLAh Brotherhood brings Modi and Lalu on the same platform. Being senior to Modi, Lalu has first right for CHAIWALLAH tag. Modi should find some other tag as he never likes second position anywhere.

                                    We can't think about to go with that person who sell the tea and riots. We should go with the knowledgeable person and that person is 'RAHUL HI'....

                                        Whatever you say NM is far better than any politician of current time! Being a resident of Gujarat I understand How sincere he is to his own state! Before accusing him you first learn to respect India's Supreme court verdict!Being a convicted corrupted and jailed how dare you to speak such nonsense.MODI is the only hope for India. Please bring him to PM position. He will definitely deliver better than these fools!!!
