Patna: Rabri Devi, the RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav's wife and former chief minister of Bihar on Sunday, Jan 18 attacked Hindu Organisation Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) and Bharatiya Jananta Party (BJP) for their double standards on what they they wear and practice.
Rabri launched an attack on RSS and BJP over the use of lathis, when she was addressing the 9th triennial open session of RJD's national council, while saying that "why RSS and BJP do not hesitate to call RJD as 'lathi mein tel pilawan party'?, when they themselves carry lathis."
Her statement came in the backdrop of BJP's mockery over RJD workers carrying lathis at a rally.
In a lighter vein, she said, "Aren't RSS oldies ashamed to wear half pants (knickers) in public?"
While concentrating on party's unity, Rabri called upon Mahagathbandhan leaders to remain united.
She even advised party leaders to refrain from leg pulling of each other as it can create problems. "Nitish Kumar led Mahagathbandhan will continue till 20 year in Bihar", she was quoted saying as by the TOI.
After concluding her speech, she greeted Lalu Prasad Yadav while offering him two roses, after he was elected as RJD's president for ninth time in a row. [Lalu Prasad elected RJD chief for 9th time in row]
At the same time another RJD leader and former union minister Kanti Singh, also presented a bouquet to Lalu.
Neeraj Kumar, the JD(U) spokesperson told OneIndia, "Ex-CM Rabri Devi has just commented over the real posture of RSS and definitely we have criticised the BJP on their comment on lathis used by RJD during the rally.
