Lalu equates PM with ‘Uncle Podger’

Patna, November 25
RJD supremo Lalu Prasad today took a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by comparing him with ‘Uncle Podger’ from the Jerome K Jerome classic ‘Three Men in a Boat’ in the aftermath of demonetisation of high value notes and hardships being faced by common people.
In a series of tweets, Yadav equated the prime minister with the character known to make a huge mess of the simplest of projects and blame everyone else for it. “During study days, read a poem “Uncle Podger hangs the picture”. #DeMonetisation chaos reminded me of him striking similarities wth Modi,” Prasad said in one of the tweets. “PM Modi is role-playing Uncle Podger and that is why he is bent on troubling the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), finance ministry, government, public, BJP and farmers,” the RJD chief quipped in another tweet.
Continuing in the same vein, Mr Prasad said, “Modi Ji, like Uncle Podger, over promises but under delivers. First promises to deliver everything on his own and then creates a mess 4 all.”
