Bihar: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav is among the rare breed of politicians who can make hilarious speeches and take potshots at adversaries through satire and ridicule. He has also inspired a generation of comedians in the art of mimicry.
But on Wednesday, Yadav played the master mimicry artist at an election campaign rally in the state where he took on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his arch-rival and chief opponent in the upcoming state assembly elections. He mocked PM Modi at the manner in which the latter announced the central government’s special package for the state. Earlier this week, PM Modi, at an event in Arrah, had declared that the government would allocate Rs 1.25 lakh crore for the development and progress of the state.
At the campaign rally, Lalu tickled the funny bone of many by his theatrical imitation of PM Modi – the rhetoric, hand-movements all included.
At one point he says, “Arey Modi ji theek se bolo, nai toh nas fat jayega” (Narendra Modi ji, please talk properly, or else the veins on the neck will break.” Laly’s mimicry was welcomed with peals of laughter from the audience.
