BJP condemns Lalu's 'road roller' comments

April 07, 2009 14:45 IST
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday sharply reacted to Union Railway Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's comment against BJP's Pilibhit candidate Varun Gandhi.

BJP spokesman and Member of Parliament Balbir Punj, while speaking to media persons in New Delhi on Tuesday, urged upon Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to drop Lalu Prasad as he has instigated one particular community and said that he would have driven a road roller against Varun Gandhi.

Balbir Punj also stated that Lalu Prasad should also be arrested under the National Security Act as he has also made a provocative speech.
