Lok Janshakti Party chief and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan's daughter Asha Paswan on Sunday staged a protest against her own father for calling former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi an 'angootha chhap' (illiterate).
Asha Paswan along with dozens of women carried posters and banners staged the 'dharna' in front of the Lok Janshakti Party office near the Patna airport.
She wants Ram Vilas Paswan to apologize to Rabri Devi. "My father should take back his words," she said.
A day earlier, Asha Paswan accused her father of insulting Rabri Devi, wife of the now-jailed RJD leader Lalu Prasad and a former Chief Minister.
Asha Paswan is the daughter of Ram Vilas Paswan from his first wife Raj Kumari Devi. Asha Paswan's husband Anil Sadhu is an RJD leader and consider close to RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, Lalu Prasad's son.
In an obvious reference to Rabri Devi, Ram Vilas Paswan had said on Friday that RJD believes in merely raising slogans and making 'angootha chhap' (illiterate) the Chief Minister.
LJP President and Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday also said the government’s decision to grant 10 per cent reservation to Economically Weaker Sections in general category has helped reignite confidence among NDA allies.
Speaking to media the Union Minister said, "It is true that we were a bit shaky following BJP’s defeat in the recent Assembly polls but PM Modi trumped the Opposition with the 10 per cent quota move. We appear to have arrested the drift now."
