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 daughter of Ram Vilas Paswan from his first wife Raj Kumari Devi. Asha Paswan’s husband Anil Sadhu is an RJD leader and considered close to RJD leader Lalu Prasad’s son, Tejashwi Yadav.
In an obvious reference to Rabri Devi, Ram Vilas Paswan had said on Friday that RJD believe in merely raising slogans and making ‘angootha chhap’ (illiterate) the Chief Minister.
