Kolkata, March 6 (IANS) Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader L.K. Advani Friday cocked a snook at the Rashtriya Janata Dal’s lantern election symbol, saying there was no electricity in Bihar during its stint in power as the party detested bulbs.
“When I was passing through Bihar during my golden jubilee Rath Yatra (in 1997), I saw that there was no electricity in the rural belts of the state. Miles after miles of areas which I travelled through were just dark,” Advani said.

“I asked one of my party workers why that was so. He referred to the symbol of the party (RJD) then ruling the state. He said the party did not like bulbs,” he added.
