Patna: The war of words between the Janata Dal – U and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) goes unabated as the JD-U spokesperson Sanjay Singh, reacting to RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's recent stab at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, said that perhaps it was time for the former Railway Minister to take retirement from politics and do some introspection of his life.

"Lalu Prasad Yadav who is synonymous with corruption, amassing properties illegally, and dynastic politics, before criticizing a clean politician like Nitish Kumar, should voluntarily retire from politics and just as the Chief Minister is reviewing the impact of his policies by going from village to village, he should also do a review of his political life to realize how devastating he had been for Bihar," the JD-U leader said.

Yadav and his younger son Tejaswi Yadav had earlier criticized Kumar of touring Bihar in the name of 'Sameeksha Yatra' at the tax-payer's money to launch an early election campaign in the state.

"Can Yadav answer if he has ever tried to transport a buffalo on a scooter? He should also answer if he, during his Chief Ministerial tenure, ever ordered repair of roads or highways or came up with a welfare plan for the poor? Also, has he ever thought beyond his own family," Singh asked.

Taking a shot at Yadav's top security cover provided by the National Security Guard (NSG), the JD-U spokesperson said that it was a mockery of the system that a man who has been barred from ever contesting an election and is a court-convicted criminal is still being protected by the tax-payers' money.

"Since Lalu Prasad Yadav is corrupt to core in view of all the corruption cases against him and his family members, he thinks all others are also as corrupt as himself," he said.
