Modi may call Lok Sabha polls next year: Lalu

Patna, Nov 19  Prime Minister Narendra Modi may go for Lok Sabha elections next year, a year ahead of schedule, RJD leader Lalu Prasad said on Sunday.

"Modi may go for Lok Sabha polls in 2018, ahead of its scheduled time in 2019," the former Bihar Chief Minister said at a meeting of his Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) here and pressed his activists to be ready to face an early parliamentary election.

But Lalu Prasad insisted that whenever the Lok Sabha election was held, the opposition parties would unite to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

He also taunted Modi by saying that earlier people used to fear the lion but now they feared the cow thanks to cow vigilantism across the country.

"Pahle log sher se darte the, ab gai se darte hain. Yeh sab Modi sarkar ki den hai."

He said that due to growing fear for being seen with cows and cattle, the Sonepur cattle fair in Bihar's Saran district, considered Asia largest cattle fair, had turned into a fair without cattle.

Lalu Prasad alleged that people were angry with the Modi government in view of its "total failure" over the last three-and-half-a-years to meet any of promises made during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

People were also upset by demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax, he added.

He said his son and former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav was in touch with Gujarat Patidar leader Hardik Patel.

"Young leaders like Hardik Patel and Tejashwi will uproot the communal forces from the country."

Also, Lalu Prasad told the media to "expose" the BJP and Modi instead of merely targeting the opposition.

"In America and other developed countries, the media has been exposing and targeting the powerful ruling parties and their leaders. 

"In India the media is fighting against the opposition. This should change."
