Paswan’s daughter stages protests against him
PATNA: Union minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan’s daughter, Asha, on Sunday led a sit-in protest against her father for allegedly calling former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi “angootha chhap [illiterate]”. Rabri Devi had in 1997 replaced her husband, Lalu Prasad, as Bihar chief minister after he was jailed in connection with a corruption case. She has no formal education. Asha led the protest in front of LJP’S office, calling her father’s remarks “outrageous”. She is one of Paswan’s two daughters. Asha’s husband, Anil Kumar Sadhu, is an RJD member. Asha said she would continue her protest until Paswan apologises. “… they [Paswan’s remarks] were intended to insult all women...reflect his mindset…,” said Asha.
