laluNew Delhi:Yoga guru Baba Ramdev has got an unusual friend in RJD chief Lalu Prasad, who has been critical of him in the past due his links with the BJP and RSS.

“People are jealous of Baba Ramdev because he is highly successful… he has earned everything through sheer hard work,” the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader said.

Unusual camaraderie was on display when the two met here, with Ramdev hugging and rubbing facial cream on Lalu’s forehead. Both have been critical of each other in the past over their political ideologies.

Asked whether he would endorse Ramdev’s Patanjali products, Lalu said: ”I am a permanent brand ambassador of his products.”

On the meeting, Ramdev said he had come to invite Lalu to attend International Yoga Day celebrations.

Additional Superintendent of Police, Mahendra Pratap Chauhan, said, “Kallu, a resident of Dubey Purva village in Marka police station area in Banda district is a daily wager from Jaipur, Rajasthan. He lived there along with his wife and three children. The sparks emanating from the bonfire lit due to the cold gutted the entire house. Possible other reasons behind the fire are also being probed.”

According to the locals, the villagers raised an alarm when they saw the flames engulfing Kallu’s house. By the time they were able to break open the door, the entire house had turned into rubble. There was only burnt debris and smoke everywhere. On receiving information, the police arrived and the fire brigade too reached the site.

Villagers said the mother and her three children were burnt to death in the fire in the kuccha house which began from a bonfire. The police and the fire brigade personnel put out the fire and removed the bodies from the rubble.
