Bihar Election Special Coverage

Bhurabal, NDA's tool against RJD

Bhurabal, NDA's tool against RJD

Sensing an opportunity to take on the Grand Alliance, the BJP pulled out an old weapon from its Bihar election arsenal. NDA leaders slammed Tejashwi for his comments, and Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi reminded people how RJD’s politics has been about “eliminating Bhu-Ra-Ba-L. “The RJD has made an objectionable remark against forward castes in its rally at Rohtas. The RJD had also opposed the 10 per cent reservation for the upper caste poor… Their politics has been about eliminating Bhu-Ra-Ba-L… They again want to divide Bihar on the basis of caste,” he tweeted. An acronym for Bhumihar-Rajput-Brahmin-Lala (Kayastha), Bhu-Ra-Ba-L was used as a pejorative during RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's first tenure as chief minister in the early nineties.
