"They are hatching a murder conspiracy against him (Lalu)...If something happens to him, we will get the prime minister skinned (khal utarwa lenge)," an angry Tej Pratap Yadav had told reporters outside the state Assembly.
"If my father is killed who will take responsibility for this?" asked Tej Pratap.
