Union railway minister Lalu Prasad slammed BJP leader L K Advani and called him a ‘terrorist’, reports The Times of India. Even as the Malegaon blast probe continues, political parties are using the twists and turns in the story to gain mileage ahead of elections. In the latest round of verbal duels, Union railway minister Lalu Prasad slammed the BJP and Hindu groups who are suspected of involvement in the terror attacks. Lashing out at the BJP, he called the party’s prime ministerial candidate a ‘terrorist’ and said such groups were trying to destroy the unity of the nation. Lalu said, “I’ve always been saying it. The BJP and L K Advani are terrorists. All of them should go to jail.” However, BJP leader Arun Jaitley dismissed Lalu’s comments deeming it unworthy of reply. He said, “I think there are some people who can singly lower the level of debate. They should not been given much of an importance.” Meanwhile, according to a PTI report, RJD President Lalu Prasad today gave a 10-day ultimatum to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to clarify his stand on resignation of the state’s MPs and MLAs over alleged atrocities on North Indians in Mumbai. Instead of shooting off “irrelevant” letters to him, Kumar should clarify as to how long he would continue to play into the hands of the BJP “which is fuelling terrorism in the country”, Prasad told reporters here. Claiming Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and self-proclaimed seer Dayanand Pandey alias Sudhakar Dwivedi had the backing of the BJP, Prasad said, “in my letter to Kumar on November 10, I had sought clarification on this issue as well as mass resignation of all MPs and MLAs to protest MNS’ onslaught on North Indians”, Prasad said.
