Patna: Lalu Yadav’s challenge for the October 30 bypolls in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) patriarch can get him “shot”, but “can’t do anything else”.

RJD chief Lalu Yadav added that “Nitish Kumar has been eulogised …PM Modi, BJP would know… Everyone was sloganeering ‘A PM should be like Nitish’… He was being touted as PM material…such arrogance and greed.”

The leader also took a jibe at the BJP and said that fuel prices are soaring while diesel is costlier than ghee. “How will people cook without kadwa tel (mustard oil),” asked RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, while speaking to ANI.

The BJP-JDU alliance has pinned its campaign for the upcoming Bihar Assembly election on the 15-year “misrule” of Lalu Prasad’s RJD. Lalu Prasad dominated the electoral politics of Bihar from 1990 to 2005 when he and his wife Rabri Devi alternatively served as Bihar chief minister
