Reacting to a remark by a BJP leader that Modi's opponents should have no place in India and should be sent to the neighbouring country, Lalu Prasad told media persons: "Modi should be sent to Pakistan first..." He said Bharatiya Janata Party leaders talk about sending his opponents to Pakistan, but, "it is best if we send him there instead".
The RJD chief has been hitting out at Modi in the last few days. On Wednesday, he called Modi a "jallad" (executioner) over the 2002 Gujarat riots. Lalu Prasad also compared Modi to a butcher. "Wo humse kya ladenge jinhe dekh kar kasai bhi sharmata ho (How will they fight us when even a butcher is ashamed on seeing them?)," he said in a tweet.
