Lalu family 'used' Muslims only as vote bank: BJP leader

Patna, Feb 23 (IANS): A day after Shahabuddin's wife Hena Shahab and her son stayed away from Tejashwi Yadav's rally in Siwan, BJP leader and spokesperson Danish Iqbal said that the Lalu family has "used" the Muslim community only as a vote bank in Bihar.

“During the tenure of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi as the chief minister, they used Mohammad Shahabuddin to establish 'Jungle Raj' in Bihar. After the demise of Mohammad Shahabuddin, RJD sidelined his family,” said Danish Iqbal.

“Lalu Prasad's family has a track record of using the Muslim community as a vote bank in Bihar, but has not given them equal participation in the party.

"The Muslim community should understand the strategy and intention of Tejashwi Yadav and the RJD,” the BJP leader said.

On Thursday, Tejashwi Yadav was in Siwan to address a rally during the RJD's Jan Vishwas Yatra. He was expecting Hena Shahab and her son, Osama Shahab, to join the rally venue, but they stayed away.
