"It's another thing that he is trying to compete in a race with Narendra Modi by claiming that he is a real tea seller. One thing is clear that even he is emphasizing on the fact that a tea seller will become Prime Minister of the country," said Nand Kishore, who is leader of opposition in the state Legislative Assembly.
    
“The reaction also highlights that a humble background of tea seller is not a disadvantage but an asset for winning top constitutional post,” he said.
    
Seeking to turn Lalu's reaction to his party advantage, Nand Kishore said, "Since he cannot contest election for 11 years following conviction in a fodder scam case, indirectly he is wishing well to Narendra Modi sharing similar background of a tea seller."
    
Nand Kishore, who has been winning Assembly elections from Patna Sahib seat for five times, himself used to sell tea in a cinema hall in the capital in his student days.

His grandfather owned a canteen in a prominent cinema hall of the capital where he used to help him in selling tea and food stuffs during interval.
