Varanasi: Rashtriya Janata Dal supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday sought to liken BJP-led NDA government's last November demonetisation decision with infamous mid-1970s Emergency-era phenomena of forced 'nasbandi' (sterilisation).
"It was not notebandi but nasbandi, carried out by the Modi government on crores of people, who were forced to stand in queue for withdrawing their own money from the banks," said Lalu, launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Lalu was addressing a poll campaign rally at Pindra near here to seek support for Congress-SP joint candidate Ajai Rai, who is the sitting MLA from the seat.
Earlier he also addressed a rally in Marihan in Mirzapur in favour of Congress-SP candidate Laliteshpati Tripathi.Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram to know which candidate/party is leading or trailing and to know who has won and who has lost and by what margin.
