Slamming Lalu's behaviour, the Bihar Chief Minister said, "Lalu is badbola (one who speaks too much). We don't comment on people who speak too much. There are some people, who are in the habit of speaking something or the other all the time. I don't reply to them."
Thousands of RJD supporters gathered at the Gandhi Maidan in Patna in response to Lalu's call for a grand 'parivartan' (change) rally. The former chief minister of Bihar arrived at the venue amid a strong welcome and he was accompanied by his wife Rabri Devi, another former CM, and two sons Tejpratap and Tejasvi.
While sources in the party said that the rally was organised to show its strength and aimed at bringing a change in Bihar, Prasad's rivals said it was an occasion to project his two sons to prominence in the RJD.
The two sons reportedly said that the younger generation of Bihar sought Prasad to be the next CM, adding that they will help his father to bring the much-sought parivartan in the state.
Lalu's elder son Tejpratap runs an automobile business in Aurangabad while Tejasvi is a former cricketer who was once part of the Delhi Daredevils IPL team. Both actively participated in organising the rally.
