Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav targetted BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi by stating, "Even a butcher will be a better PM than Narendra Modi." Taking the slander futher he added, "Even a butcher would be ashamed to be compared to the BJP's prime ministerial candidate."
Fire breaks out in Prime Minister's office
Lalu Yadav vs Narendra Modi: Even a butcher will be a better PM
Fire broke out Tuesday morning in a room of the Prime Minister's Office. There was no damage or injury reported, an official said.
"There was a short circuit in a computer UPS in the PMO's room in South Block, which triggered off a smoke detector. The fire alarm went off and fire service reached the spot," said an official in the PMO.
The BJP is reluctant to relegate Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa's AIADMK to the enemy camp just as yet even as it has given up hope on West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress being a potential ally.
From the camaraderie between chief ministers Narendra Modi and Banerjee a year ago over "filling potholes" in West Bengal to the no-holds-barred verbal duel, the relations between the two parties have taken a bitter turn. BJP leaders who had refrained from taking on Banerjee, who was at some point seen as a potential post-poll ally, have dropped their inhibitions in castigating her party.
