RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday shared a Dubsmash video on Twitter to mock Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 

In the video, Prasad can be seen lip-syncing Modi’s “acche din” slogan. “Hindustan ke ek ek gareeb admi ko mufat main 15-20 lakh rupay yunhi mil jayega (Every poor person in India will get Rs 15-20 lakh for free),” the former Bihar chief minister can be heard lip-syncing.

He ends with “yeh ek jumla”.

Prasad recently took to twitter and likened his associate-turned-adversary Nitish Kumar to “the species that keeps leaping from one tree branch to another” while accusing Kumar of being “paltuon ka sardar” (the king of turncoats).

Prasad, who has been sore ever since Kumar’s abrupt exit from the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ stripped the RJD off power and caused his sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav to lose their ministerial berths, shared a newspaper clipping from 2014, wherein the chief minister was quoted as having said “I shall rather be consigned to dust than align with the BJP.”

Known for his acerbic wit, Prasad captioned the photograph in Hindi “read the statement of the creature that keeps leaping from one tree branch to another. He has been responsible for changing loyalties five times in as many years. Hence he has been called the king of turncoats.”
