Patna: Former Bihar CM and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi is set to break the record of his archival RJD chief Lalu Prasad by becoming a member of both Houses of Parliament and the state assembly.
Modi, who filed a by-election on Wednesday for the by-election from Bihar to the Rajya Sabha seat, said the opposition was ready to enter the upper house of parliament and the opposition parties were not going to put their candidate against the BJP in all probability.
If Modi wins the Rajya Sabha by-election, he will be equal to his archival RJD chief Lalu Prasad by becoming a member of all four legislatures of the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, State Assembly and State Assembly.

Lalu made this record when he entered the Rajya Sabha in 2002 after becoming a member of three other legislatures. Lalu first entered the Lok Sabha in 1977, the Bihar assembly in 1980, and the state assembly in 1990.
After Lalu, former Chatra MP Nagamani made a similar record when he was elected to the state assembly in 2006. Prior to being elected to the Rajya Sabha, Nagamani entered the Bihar assembly by winning a kurta seat in 1977, becoming a Rajya Sabha member in 1994 and the Lok Sabha in 1999 winning the Chatra seat (now in Jharkhand). .
Sushil Modi entered the Bihar assembly in 1990, the Lok Sabha in 2004 and the state assembly in 2005 after winning the Bhagalpur seat.
“If Modi wins the current Rajya Sabha by-election, he will equal Lalu Prasad’s record after a gap of 18 years and my record after a gap of 14 years,” former Union Minister Nagamani told TOI on Wednesday.
Nagamani said that besides Lalu and them, no other politician in Bihar can access the central and four legislative houses of the state.
