"Babri masjid was razed to the ground and Congress too is responsible for it as it did nothing to prevent it," he said addressing an election meeting at Manhgachi in Bihar's Darbhanga district on Friday.
"If anyone continues to talk nonsense, I will reveal more," he said, without elaborating.
Lalu, who had recently been chastised by the Election Commission for his 'crush-under-the-roller' remark against BJP candidate Varun Gandhi, described the saffron party as 'Bharat jalao party'.
"The BJP is Bharat jalao party. It wants to see that India is up in flames," he said.

A wave is blowing in favour of the alliance of RJD-LJP-SP, he claimed.
