RJD president Lalu Prasad will address his party’s office-bearers virtually on the party’s foundation day on July 5 — in the first such interaction since his release on bail in April.
While Lalu’s political opinions, including those taking a jibe at the NDA governments at the Centre and Bihar, were being shared through his Twitter handle since his incarceration in fodder scam cases, this will be the best time he will directly interact with his party functionaries, from the national executive to block level functionaries.
A senior RJD leader said, “Even though Tejashwi Prasad Yadav has been leading from the front, Lalu-ji addressing the rank and file of the party would galvanise the cadre. His sheer presence is enough to motivate us. His direct interface is all the more important because he had been missing from action for close to three years because of his imprisonment and recurrent illness.” Another leader said Leader of Opposition Tejashwi will moderate the session opened by Lalu Prasad.
