Patna: A BJP leader on Tuesday demanded that National Security Act (NSA) be invoked against RJD chief and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad for fomenting communal frenzy by stating that he (Lalu) would have crushed Varun Gandhi under a roller had he been the union home minister.
“RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and his party are out to break the social harmony and fomenting communal and caste divisions in Kishanganj, a highly communally sensitive district, bordering Bangladesh and hence NSA should be invoked against Prasad,” BJP leader Kiran Ghai, a member of the party’s state election campaign committee, said.
BJP has submitted a memorandum to the Chief Election Commissioner through Bihar chief electoral officer demanding action against Prasad under RPA and IPC besides derecogising the Rashtriya Janata Dal, she said.
Ghai said the Centre should sack Prasad from the cabinet.
Asked whether she would demand or submit any memorandum to her own NDA government in the state for invoking NSA, Ghai said, “We have expressed our views. The government will think over it seriously”.
