Patna, Oct 28: Enthused by response of national and international students at a business management school where he had delivered a speech, Railway Minister Lalu Prasad today addressed his 'Chetavni Rally' with the same fervour of a teacher. While addressing the masses at the rally, the RJD supremo, on several occasions, asked rallyists to raise their hands on different issues and warn the Nitish government by registering their presence.
At one point of time, Mr Prasad reacted sharply to the allegations made by his political opponents, who described the rally as ''a rally of Yadavas'' by retorting that lakhs of dalits and Muslims took part in the rally.
Mr Prasad also asked these two sections to raise their hands for showing their presence and strength in the rally.
In response, thousands of hands raised at the historical Gandhi Maidain. Amazingly, the crowd, like obedient students, obeyed the directions of their 'teacher' and after a formal head count, when Mr Prasad asked them to put down their hands they olbiged. Reminding the promises of the Nitish Kumar government, Mr Prasad alleged that not even a single promise had been fulfilled and urged the people to pledge for throwing out the Nitish Kumar government from power and again asked them to raise their hands.
The rallyists seemed to oblige every time, only proving their 'obedience' to their 'teacher' once again.
