Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Misa Bharti had on Sunday said, “We are talking about the implementation of MSP and he (PM Modi) sees appeasement in that. He always accuses our family of corruption whenever he arrives here (Bihar). If the people of this country give the INDIA Alliance a chance (to form the government), then from PM Modi to BJP leaders, they will be behind bars.”

These statements by the RJD MP became the latest flashpoint between both parties.

“Should I be afraid? I am still the lawyer in the CBI inquiry against Lalu Prasad in the fodder scam. You, your mother, your brother’s trial on land-for-job policy is still on. Nothing is hidden from the country. The PM’s post is highly respected and you should not say these kinds of irresponsible and shameful things.” Ravi Shankar Prasad added.
