LS polls: Rabri Devi plays caste card, roots for rape convict's wife in Bihar's Nawada


LS polls: Rabri Devi plays caste card, roots for rape convict's wife in Bihar's Nawada

Nawada (Bihar), Apr 05 (ANI): Former chief minister of Bihar, Rabri Devi, allegedly played the caste card to woo the Yadav community, while campaigning for the wife of a rape convict Rajballabh Yadav. Rabri accused the Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government of "maligning the image of Yadavs" by sending Rajballabh to jail.

While campaigning for RJD's Lok Sabha candidate Vibha Devi, Rabri said, "They have tried to malign the image of Yadavs by falsely implicating Rajballabh and sending him to jail. I appeal to the people to vote for Vibha Devi and make her win the elections." A Patna court convicted Rajballabh and four others in a 2016 rape case of a minor in December, disqualifying him from contesting any election.

RJD then fielded Rajballabh's wife Vibha Devi from the Nawada constituency in Bihar.
