RJD plans campaign against Gadkari for Lalu remarks (Lead)May 13th, 2010 - 5:09 pm ICT by IANS
Patna, May 13 (IANS) Outraged at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Nitin Gadkari’s offensive remarks against their chief Lalu Prasad, hundreds of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) workers in Bihar burnt effigies of Gadkari and threatened a campaign against him.
At a public rally in Chandigarh Wednesday night, Gadkari likened Lalu Prasad and Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to “dogs who lick the feet of the Congress” but retracted his words later, saying he didn’t mean personal offence.
“We burnt effigies of Gadkari at busy Dak Bunglow Square in Patna to show our anger and to protest his abusive remarks against Lalu Prasad,” RJD leader Chotu Singh said.
Party sources said a meeting of workers has been called Friday to discuss the issue.
“We will discuss suing Gadkari at Friday’s meeting,” said a senior RJD leader.
“We will not sit silent. We are ready to expose Gadkari’s narrow mindset…,” senior RJD leader Ram Kirpal Yadav told IANS.
