If Mr Yadav is disqualified from the Rajya Sabha, the numbers of the Opposition parties will dwindle and the seat will positively go to the NDA kitty, he said.
Lalu Yadav is organising the “BJP hatao desh bachao” rally to expose the “betrayal by Nitish Kumar”, after the JD(U) chief and Bihar chief minister dumped the Grand Alliance and formed a government with the NDA.
Hitting out at the proposed rally, Bihar deputy chief minister and BJP leader Sushil Modi said, “This rally should actually be called ‘Benami sampatti banchao’ rally.”
