"There is no question of taking him into BJP," former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said reacting to Anirudh Prasad alias Sadhu Yadav's meeting with Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi in Gandhinagar on Friday.
"Anybody can meet any person as there is no bar in this," Modi said from Gaya, where he is participating in the state party executive committee meeting.
"Neither Sadhu Yadav expressed any desire to join BJP nor the party gave him any offer so from where does this question of Yadav joining BJP come?" Modi said.
Modi's colleague and Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly Nand Kishore Yadav echoed similar views. "There is no chance of taking Sadhu Yadav into the party fold," he said. While BJP leaders are in a denial mode, Nitish Kumar led JD-U snubbed the party for its growing affinity to RJD chief Lalu Yadav.
"Entertaining a person like Sadhu Yadav who was a symbol of jungle raj prevailing in Bihar during RJD period reflects the taste of Narendra Modi," Neeraj Kumar, state JD-U spokesman said.
Another JD-U spokesman Rajiv Ranjan Prasad said the meeting is enough to prove Modi's ‘growing closeness’ with the RJD Chief.
