Araria, Nov 9: Commenting on L K Advani's remark that becoming Prime Minister was not more than what he got from the party, RJD chief Lalu Prasad today took a dig at him, saying he complimented the veteran BJP leader for admitting that he was not in the race for prime ministership.
“I compliment Advani for publicly admitting that he is not in the race for prime ministership,” Prasad said at a public meeting during ‘Parivartan Yatra' in Bihar's Araria district.
Stating that he had said on several occasions in the past that Advani would never become the Prime Minister, the RJD president said it was for the first time that the BJP leader had revealed his thoughts about his prime ministerial ambitions.
“It is written in the horoscope of Advani that he will never become the Prime Minister,” Prasad had said.
The veteran BJP leader had said on his birthday, “Party has given me so much all my life, that when somebody says you have to become the prime minister, I say becoming prime minister is not more than what I have got from the party.”
