Patna: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday took a dig at rival Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad over his controversial “beef eating” comment, while invoking youth power to change government in Bihar.

In Gujarat yaduvanshis (people of yadav caste) have brought white revolution while rearing cows and “Amul” has been possible only because of the yaduvanshis.

“But, here (in Bihar) we don’t know what he (Lalu Prasad) has eaten up…he has derogated yaduvanshis. Don’t forget that it was the yaduvanshis had supported you and took to the power”, Mr. Modi said while addressing his first among four rallies on Thursday at Munger.

Earlier, the RJD president had stoked a controversy saying “Hindus also eat beef.” He, however, withdrew his statement. “I keep cows and worship cows”, Mr. Prasad said.

Insisting that Mr. Prasad cannot absolve himself of his beef remarks by claiming that it was the

“devil” (shaitan) on his tongue which made him say it, Mr. Modi said, “I want to know how the shaitan got the address (of Lalu)...he recognises that it was the shaitan in a similar manner as people recognise their relatives.”

Ridiculing Mr. Prasad’s remarks that it was the “devil under whose influence” he made the beef remarks, Mr. Modi said “so far we were fighting (political rivals) human beings. Now a shaitan has entered a human body which is after us.

Mr. Modi tried to make a connection with the youth force and appealed to them to throw the present government out of power for the “development of the State”.

“It is only you who can change the fate of Bihar”, he said. He also said that during “jungle raj” the biggest industry in Bihar was “kidnapping”. “According to a Bihar government report between January to July this year there were 4,000 cases of kidnapping in Bihar,” Mr. Modi said.
