Addressing a political meeting after his elder son Tej Pratap Yadav filed nomination from Mahua Assembly seat in Vaishali district, Prasad showed the book 'Bunch of Thoughts' written by M S Golwalkar which he said, stressed that reservation should be provided on economic basis.

"The present leadership of RSS is following the thought of its guru (Golwalkar)," he said, referring to recent comment of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat over the need to review reservation. BJP has been taking order from RSS and has no guts to defy the thinking of its ideological parent (RSS), he alleged.

The election meeting at Gandhi maidan in Mahua, about 30 km from Hajipur in Vaishali district, was also attended by Prasad's younger son Tejaswi Yadav, who is in fray from Raghopur seat in the same district.

Earlier, Tej Pratap filed his nomination for Mahua seat at the office of Sub Divisional Magistrate Mumtaz Alam. Tej Pratap is pitted against sitting MLA and a now a Hindustani Awam Morcha nominee Ravindra Rai from the seat.

The RJD chief attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi apparently over Dadri incident and described him as 'Dhritarashtra' who observed silence when there was need to speak (over any controversy).
