RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav had a close shave today when a ceiling fan fell on him while he was addressing an election rally.
The incident took place in Motihari district when the leader was sitting on the dais. In the video, Yadav can be seen telling someone about the ceiling fan, which was clearly wobbly. Seconds later, the fan is seen crashing down on the leader. Yadav, though, hit by the fan is unhurt in the incident. RJD leaders immediately removed the fan from the stage.
