Lalu Prasad made these comments ahead of PM Modi's visit to Bihar to address four rallies today. "Why has PM Modi remained silent on the reservation issue after the RSS chief demanded to end it. He should have either condemned the statement or provided a clarification on his stand," Lalu said at a press conference here today.

The RJD chief added if PM Modi is not in support of reservation, he is a 'nakli' OBC. He said reservation should be in proportion to the population of Dalits and OBCs.

"We are looking for an increase in reservation and RSS is conspiring to end it, we will not allow it," Lalu added. Lalu also targeted Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah and said,"Shah is dreaming of becoming Prime Minister by pushing back PM Modi."

He described the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as a factory which produces and spreads hate in the country. "The RSS agenda is to keep Dalits and OBCs as slaves," said Lalu. He also questioned the BJP's development agenda in the polls.

"Why has BJP promised to distribute TVs, laptops and scooties if the party is sure of development. BJP is trying to bribe people for votes," Lalu stated.

He cautioned people that PM Modi has betrayed the people by failing to fulfill any of the promises he made during the last Lok Sabha polls.

"BJP has been using money power in Bihar polls like never before. The party has deployed dozens of choppers, hundreds of its leaders have booked costly hotel rooms,” he cited.
