RJD chief Lalu Prasad addresses a rally in R-Block on Wednesday after attending a protest march at Raj Bhavan. The protest was against holding back of caste census data, which he wants made public. It was was organised by the Dalit and Mahadalit cell of the party in which a large number of people participated, including RJD state president Ram Chandra Purbey and RJD youth wing president Sheo Chandra Ram. After passing through Fraser Road and Dakbunglaw roundabout, the march reached R-Block. It was converted into a meeting there. While addressing the gathering, Lalu attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of being responsible for the Godhra carnage. Lalu said when Modi allegedly burnt Gujarat the days were called "blessed" but when he gave rights to the Lalu regime, it was called "jungle raj". Lalu also said BJP leaders were eating chicken and fish with a fork and a spoon whereas the children of the poor eat on the road. Text by Amit Bhelari, picture by Jai Prakash
