Without taking the names of the two leaders, Lalu tweeted, "Pehle guru ko roka tha, ab chele ka number hai. (Earlier I had stopped the teacher, now it is the turn of his disciple)."

The BJP leaders touring the state were quick to react to the tweet and said Lalu was daydreaming about stopping their prime ministerial candidate.

"For stopping Modi, Prasad will first have to stop BJP in Saran constituency from where his wife Rabri Devi is contesting. Our candidate Rajiv Pratap Rudy is winning from there, so how will he stop Modi in the country?” BJP spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters at Patna airport before leaving for election campaigning in Siwan and Motihari.

Lok Janshakti Party president Ram Vilas Paswan rubbished Lalu's tweet, saying first ‘he will have to become something then only he will be able to check Modi’.

“During Advani's rath-yatra, Prasad was the chief minister. Today he is nothing,” he added.
