Patna,(BiharTimes): Three days after travelling side by side in the same plane with the chief minister, RJD president Lalu Prasad on Friday once again chose to target his chottey bhai Nitish Kumar.
Addressing a Press conference in Patna on Friday he said the NDA government in Bihar is on the verge of crumbling as the love marriage between the Janata Dal (United) and BJP have collapsed. He said removing the Rabri Devi government and destroying him was the sole purpose for the two parties to come together. The divorce has not been declared officially but everybody is aware that the relation between the alliance partners has turned bitter and will no longer survive.
Commenting on Nitish’s support to UPA candidate, Pranab Mukherjee, Lalu said he is the chief minister of the state and can go anywhere. It is not his duty to suggest anything on the issue.
On the repeated demand of special status for Bihar, Lalu said it is nothing but skirting from other important issues. The people of the state are facing acute power shortage and hundreds of people have died of dreaded disease yet the state government had done nothing.
He asked Nitish to publish the list of subsidy beneficiaries, if his government had really provided any subsidy to the farmers.
Two leaders of Kaimur and Rohtas districts, Malti Gupta and Chandradev Bind, joined RJD on the occasion.
Gupta and Bind were former district board chairpersons of Kaimur and Rohtas districts respectively.
RJD MPs Jagdanand Singh and Ram Kripal Yadav were present on the occasion.
Lalu claimed that his party workers who went over to join other parties in the recent years, were now returning to the RJD after realising the truth of the Nitish government.
It needs to be recalled that only on Tuesday last both the leaders went to New Delhi sitting side by side on the same flight. This bonhomie between the two created a lot of speculations in the political circle of the state.
