RSS a band of vyabhicharis: Lalu

May 02, 2009 15:34 IST

In a statement which could kick up another political controversy, RJD President and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav today described the RSS as a band of "vyabhichari" (dissolute) persons.

"These RSS people claim to be brahmachari (celibate) but are, in fact, vyabhichari (dissolute)," he said of the fountainhead of saffron ideology.

Lalu had set off a controversy with his 'crush-under-roller' remark against BJP's pin-up boy Varun Gandhi for his hate speeches. His wife and former Bihar CM Rabri Devi had kicked up a storm by saying Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Bihar's

JD(U) president Lalan Singh were each other's 'sala', a derogatory term.

The Election Commission had pulled up the couple for their remarks and asked them to be careful about what they speak.
