Lalu Prasad shuns media

Patna: The otherwise media-friendly Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Prasad shunned the media for the entire day on Thursday when polling was held for three Bihar Lok Sabha seats, including Pataliputra where he is contesting.

A sombre-looking Mr. Prasad turned up with his wife and former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi, son Tej Pratap and a daughter at the polling station on the Veterinary College campus where scores from the media were waiting for him since early morning.

He pushed aside reporters and cameramen of television news channels. A cameraman, who managed to sneak into the room where the electronic voting machine was placed, was given a dressing down by an angry RJD supremo. The man rushed out sheepishly.

Mr. Prasad has of late been complaining about getting a “bad press.” — PTI
