The bold demonetization plan implemented by the government has been generating mixed reviews since its inception. PM Narendra Modi had to tackle substantial amount of heat and opposition from several party leaders. To everyone’s surprise, PM Modi had an unusual supporter in the form of Lalu Prasad Yadav, the former Chief Minister of Bihar and the current RJD chief.
Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday came along in support of the demonetization plan when he met with Nitish Kumar. It is apparently believed that, Lalu initially was in strong opposition of the demonetization plan, but following his meeting with Nitish Kumar, Lalu expressed his support and approval of the controversial scheme. This meeting between the two politicians held lot of significance because of the contentious statement given by Lalu’s wife Rabri Devi on Nitish Kumar. Rabri Devi, in a statement to media, bluntly said that Sushil Kumar Modi and BJP should take Nitish Kumar with them and marry his (Modi’s) sister to him. Lalu and Nitish met for almost an hour despite the fact that an RJD legislature meeting was already in progress.
