Bangalore, Feb 14 (UNI) Senior BJP Leader Yashwant Sinha today took strong exception to transfer of five officers of South Western Railway (SWR) by Railway Minister Lalu Prasad for allegedly serving ''cold food'' to him during his recent visit to Karnataka.
Addressing a BJP state-level meeting here, Mr Sinha likened Mr Prasad to that of ''Mughal Badshah''.
Mr Sinha said, ''it's an irony of democracy that Mr Prasad, who rose from the JP (Jayaprakash Narayan) movement, is now siding with Sonia Gandhi''.
''He has ended whatever JP had stood for -- fighting for democracy and crusade against corruption,'' he said.
Meanwhile, BJP leaders H N Ananth Kumar and State unit President D V Sadananda Gowda announced that party would launch agitation against Mr Prasad's reported remark, terming those protesting alleged disparity in railway recruitment, as '' dirty people''.
