PATNA: RJD chief Lalu Prasad mounted heavy attacks on his rival, chief minister Nitish Kumar after he gave a slogan of “Lalach Bharat Chhodo” yesterday marking 75 years of “Quit India Movement”.
“Nitish Kumar talks about ‘greed’ but he himself sold out principles to stay in power,” alleged Prasad, speaking to media in Ranchi on Thursday.
“Lalchi khud hain. Pehle aapna gaddi chhodo (He himself is greedy. He should set an example by quitting his throne first,” Prasad suggested indirectly referring to Bihar chief minister.
