Make jokes about PM, Akhilesh tells Lalu ahead of UP campaign trail

Lucknow: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav is the main attraction in the poll campaign in Uttar Pradesh. UP CM Akhilesh Yadav, the face of the Samajwadi Party has not shared dais with the RJD chief, which means Lalu has to go it alone.

But Akhilesh did his bit by allotting a helicopter for Lalu to enable him to go hopping from one rally to another. Akhilesh has told Lalu to take pot shots at PM Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit shah in his on imitable style, which Akhilesh has been unable to do.

Lalu, who has family ties with Samajwadi Party leaders, had tried in vain to intervene in the battle for party’s leadership between Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son. The RJD leader’s youngest daughter and the Samajwadi chief’s grandnephew were married in 2015.
