“We are fasting to expose the Narendra Modi government’s anti-poor, anti-Dalit and anti-backward face,” Lalu Prasad told the media at the Gandhi Maidan here where the one-day protest is being observed.

Ram Chandra Purve, the state president of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), said the fast was “just a beginning” in the campaign against the Modi government.

Lalu Prasad has called a shutdown in Bihar on Monday over the issue. (IANS)
