Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad today said Bihar is facing a rainfall deficit after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the state last month.

"Modi's visit to Bihar was a curse. Modi's feet are inauspicious. There is no rainfall in Bihar after Modi visited the state. Millions of farmers are worried," Lalu Prasad said at a function organised by a news channel in Patna.

PM Modi has visited Bihar five times in the last two months. He addressed four BJP 'parivartan' rallies and visited Bodh Gaya this month.

The RJD chief accused the BJP of playing caste-politics. "BJP has been projecting a Rajput caste leader and union Minister Radha Mohan Singh as chief ministerial candidate in an area with a sizeable Rajput population and a Bhumihar leader and former union minister C.P. Thakur in villages dominated by Bhumihars."

Calling Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar "younger brother", Lalu Yadav said that if RJD and JD-U had not joined forces for the state polls, the BJP-led NDA would have swept the state like it did in the last Lok Sabha polls.

He also said that women in large numbers want a selfie with him. "I am popular in and outside the country. My fans are everywhere. Women want selfies with me. I, however, caution them not to misuse it."
