Patna, Oct. 3 (ANI): Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday mocked the Bihar unit of the BJP, saying their high command had no faith in the state unit.
“The BJP’s high command considers its state leader and party workers in the state fools. They don’t have any faith in them and that is why they are pumping all the power from outside,” Yadav told ANI.
“There is no respect for the BJP state unit in their own party,” he added.
He also accused the BJP of using black money to buy off the people of Bihar.
“Traders of Kolkata are being forced to pump foreign currencies into the state. The foreign currency is flowing from every direction. They want to buy the integrity of the people of Bihar,” he added.
Yadav further alleged that the money recovered from illegal sources in the state over the last few days belonged to the BJP and was being used for its promotion.
“To whom does this money belong to? Does it belong to Lalu, or the Communist Party?” he asked.
Elections for the 243-member Bihar Assembly will be held in five phases between October 12 and November 5.
The counting of votes will take place on November 8. (ANI)
