No traditional 'Makar Sankranti' feast at Lalu's residence
"The Rashtriya Janata Dal is upset after Laluji was denied bail two days ago. The party would have celebrated the 'chuda-dahi' festival next week if he was around. He has been deliberately framed under false charges by the BJP-controlled CBI," party spokesperson Bhai Virender said here.
'Chuda-dahi' is a staple dish in Bihar during Makar Sankranti. It is curd poured on top of flattened rice served with jaggery.
Lalu Prasad's family did not celebrated Makar Sankranti in 2018 also after he was jailed in December 2017.
"Laluji personally served us 'chuda-dahi' and Rabri Devi and her two sons, Tej Prarap Yadav and Tehaswi Yadav, used to request all to enjoy delicacies," RJD leader Shakti Yadav said.
