16 Inspirational Quotes By Lalu Prasad Yadav The Former Bihar CM The Man Who Transformed The Indian Railways Into A Profit-Making Organization.

It was the year 1990 and RJD had won the state assembly elections. The party leader went to his mother to share the news and told her that he had won the polls and would be soon sworn in as the Chief Minister. At this his mother replied in an apathetic manner, “What is the big deal? You have not got a government job after all.”

Do you know who is this politician? It was none other than former Bihar CM Lalu Prasad Yadav.

The politician is known for his tongue-in-cheek remarks and leaves no chance to decimate the opposition.

Though many view him as a promulgator of caste based politics, the people of Bihar have a different opinion: “During Laluji’s rule, we used to get power for 16 hours but after Nitish became CM we get it for two hours. Power supply is only good enough to charge mobile phones. We got our identity because of Lalu Prasad. So what if he has not fulfilled several expectations, we can never desert him.”

Lalu was a supporter of Jayprakash Narayan, who led the national movement against dictatorial regime of Indira Gandhi. He was put behind bars during the Emergency and it was at that time his daughter was born. Folklore says JP himself named the girl child as Misa which was an acronym for Maintenance of Internal Security Act.
