PATNA: Unfazed by Election Commission scanner for casteist remark, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad today made a blistering attack at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and said that he would not sit quietly in waging battle for the backwards, Dalits and poor even if they decide to "hang" him.

"Let Modi give Bharat Ratna to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for ending reservation...even if they decide to hang me for waging battle for backwards, Dalits and poor, I will not sit quietly," Prasad tweeted, a day after EC took notice of his "backward and forward castes" comment at Raghopur on Sunday.

The RJD chief further wrote on the micro-blogging site that even if PM Modi filed petition in the United Nations against him, he would not take rest towards getting reservation quota increased and caste census report published.

Prasad's alleged cast remark during campaigning for his son Tejaswi Yadav at Raghopur on Sunday last has come under the Election Commission lens. Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi had yesterday said that any casteist remark was a breach of EC guidelines and the commission would deal with such matters under its legal framework.

He had also said the Election Commission would find out the details of the alleged casteist remarks by Prasad and take appropriate action.

The RJD supremo had described the crucial Assembly elections in Bihar as a direct fight between "the backward castes and forward castes" and gave a call to Yadavs and other backward castes to rally behind the secular alliance to defeat the BJP-led NDA.
