New Delhi: Not mincing words, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of his rallies in Gaya and Jamui in Bihar and fired, “there should be some limit to lies”.
He tweeted, “Modiji is coming to Gaya again today. I urge you (PM Modi) to listen to your last address given at Gaya. I assure you it will put you to shame… there should be some limit to lies also. Who lies so much?”
Yadav’s mention of Modi’s address in Gaya is that from the BJP’s poll pitch ahead of the 2014 General elections. The RJD leader further posted a video, purportedly of Narendra Modi’s 2014 address at a rally in Gaya on March 27- wherein he is promising to get water to Bihar and Jharkhand if BJP is voted to power. Mocking his poll promise, the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Yadav mocked the Prime Minister and said, “He was bringing enough water to drown the entire Bihar and Jharkhand.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to address rallies in Jamui and Gaya in Bihar today.
Both these constituencies will go to polls in the first phase of the Lok Sabha elections on April 11. Both Gaya and Jamui are being contested by BJP’s alliance partners LJP and JD (U). From Jamui, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan’s son and sitting MP Chirag Paswan are in the fray while from Gaya, which was represented by the BJP, JD (U)’s Vijay Manjhi is pitted against former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi.
