New Delhi: Congress Party leaders have slammed the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav for his use of ‘objectionable language’, allegedly directed at Bihar Congress in-charge Bhakta Charan Das.
Former Lok Sabha Speaker and senior Congress leader Meira Kumar on Monday also fired back at Lalu stating: “a respected leader has used objectionable language against Bihar Congress in-charge Bhakta Charan Das, hurting the self-respect of Dalit community in Bihar and the country and qualifies as an offence under SC/ST act.”
While announcing the fall of Mahagathbandhan and the Bihar and RJD’s decision to break up with their old ally Congress for the upcoming polls, the RJD President said that the alliance is of no use. He further called the Bihar AICC Chief with a slang that means stupid in ‘Bihari’.
Prem Chand Mishra, a Congress legislator from Bihar, said that Lalu claims to be from the marginalized community and still uses abusive words against Dalit leaders like Bhakta Charan Das, which is condemnable.

Lalu Prasad earlier last week stated that he will campaign for the Tarapur and Kusheshwar Asthan assembly seats, which have become a flashpoint between Congress & RJD. On Sunday, the RJD head dismissed any collaboration with Congress, thereby burying the Mahagathbandhan.
