New Delhi, Oct.7 (ANI): Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav on Wednesday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is fearing defeat in the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls, is coming up with insignificant issues to divert the attention of the people.
Lalu said the BJP, which is least concerned about the nation’s progress, has become nervous taking note of the grand alliance’s vision for development.
The RJD chief also took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘pradhan sevak’ assertion.
“Punishing the wicked, worshipping the kin and doing justice, not taking sides, protecting the nation. In these five, does even one exist in the ‘pradhaan sevak’?” he said in a tweet.
Lalu had earlier slammed BJP president Amit Shah over his ‘jungle raj’ remark and said the ‘NRI Gujaratis’ do not know Bihar better than him and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Shah had earlier lambasted Lalu for ‘destroying’ Bihar in his 15-year reign.
“Want to remind you this is the same Bihar that once upon a time ruled India. It was the center of education, history and music. Look at what has happed to the land of Chandragupta, Samudragupta, Chanakya and Buddha. I am saddened by what has happened to this once glorious state,” Shah had said while addressing a rally in Katihar.
The RJD is contesting the Bihar polls in alliance with the JD (U) and Congress. (ANI)
