Pat, November 26: RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday said he has halted the Bharatiya Jata Party’s rath (chariot) of “intolerance” twice in Bihar, first in 1990 and the second time in 2015. “Humne asahishnuta ke rath ko Bihar mein do baar roka hai (I have halted the chariot of intollerance twice in Bihar),” Lalu Prasad said in a tweet while referring to the arrest of senior BJP leader L.K. Advani in 1990 and the party’s drubbing in 2015 Bihar assembly elections. “The BJP’s character has not changed; only its leaders have changed,” Lalu Prasad quipped. The former Bihar chief minister said rendra Modi was a campaign mager of the BJP’s rath yatra led by Advani in 1990 and was now its face and leader. “Only Modi’s post and stature in the party has changed,” he said.
