Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - HTNATION -

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.
