Urine as helpful as Dettol: Lalu
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad believes that urine is an effective medication and as useful as Dettol. Besides, it could be used as an anti-septic in an emergency situation.

The former chief minister said this while presiding over a two-day session on “Diverse disease and simplicity of homoeopathy” organised by the Homoeopathy Science Congress here in the state capital.

Lalu said, “Earlier, during our childhood days, whenever we used to sustain injuries, we would apply urine, which worked as anti-septic. Now people use Dettol, and some of them now use it (Dettol) to wash their hands. This is the only progress we have made,” said Lalu as the audience burst into laughter.

On a serious note, Lalu added that it was in the homoeopathy methodology where each and every disease nowadays gets cured without any side effects. “Allopathy mein toh sirf chir-phad hota hai. (In allopathy treatment, only surgery is done)” said Lalu.

Clarifying that he had to come to the doctors’ meet instead of his son, Lalu said, “The Health Minister was busy. So I decided to fill in.”

Lalu’s interest in the health department’s functioning, of late, has drawn flak from the opposition with senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi wondering that in what capacity Lalu, a fodder scam convict, had been making visits.

Earlier this month, Lalu inspected Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) and asked its director to improve the healthcare facilities. Later, he asked the Darbhanga Civil Surgeon to reinstate some sacked Mamta (health staff appointed on contract) workers.

Lalu, during homoeopathy doctors’ meet, clarified that he went to inspect the IGIMS as the hospital was built during his tenure (when he was Bihar CM). “So I just wanted to survey how the hospital was functioning nowadays,” he said.
