As far as the political in Bihar is concerned, the jailed RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, on Monday, had written an open letter to Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Facebook, highlighting the symbolism of the 'lantern' (RJD 's symbol) and its usefulness as a medium to achieve progress, indiscrimination, peace and love.
Lashing out at JD(U) chief, he also pointed out how the 'arrow' is a representation of violence, subtly hinting at all the crimes in the state. He elaborates on how to achieve the eradication of unemployment hate, injustice, and discrimination, one must compromise and work in coordination like a 'diya and baati'. He also slammed his alliance with the BJP calling them Manuvian forces while slamming Kumar for taking shortcuts and opportunistic compromises.
He ended the post saying that in the Kumar could or could not use his 'arrow' to backstab the 'lotus' (BJP) as he did to the 11 crore people of Bihar.
"Why are chanting 'arrow' in the age of missile? Arrow will be seen in museums only. The lantern will be seen shining everywhere and brighter because 11 crore poor people have been backstabbed by your arrows. Now you can fire or hide your arrow in the muddy lotus, your choice," concludes Yadav with a message to voters warning them of the 'arrow' piercing Bihar.
