Patna: With a string of utterances against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar by two senior leaders of RJD over the law and order situation in the state, the JD(U) on Saturday appealed to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad seeking action against them.

The party said statements made by RJD leaders Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Mohammad Taslimuddin were "against the principles" of 'Mahagathbandhan dharma'.

"We have requested the RJD boss Lalu Prasad  to take action against both Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Mohammad Taslimuddin. Either these leaders should be kept under control or be suspended," JD(U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh said.

The spokesman said JD(U) does not attach importance to Taslimuddin at all, adding, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh has also been "derailed" ever since he lost Lok Sabha elections to LJP's Rama Singh.

Raghuvansh Prasad Singh has gone into "political coma", the JD(U) chief spokesman said, adding, Raghuvansh has been continuously making statements against his party's national president Nitish Kumar, which is not good for an alliance.

Not a single leader of JD(U) made any statement against RJD leaders, he said.

Meanwhile, former union minister and Araria Lok Sabha member Taslimuddin on Saturday once again trained his gun at Nitish Kumar government urging RJD boss to snap its ties with JD(U).

"I have asked Lalu Prasad to snap its alliance with JD(U). I want it to happen today itself but there is Lalu Prasad in between," Taslimuddin said.

He further said that the chief minister should first set things in order in Bihar before undertaking a nation-wide campaign on prohibition.

Soon after the meeting of the state and central parliamentary board of RJD here yesterday, both Raghuvansh and Taslimuddin had attacked the Nitish Kumar government.

The Araria MP had said that Nitish Kumar should quit as he has failed to tackle the law and order situation. Earlier, Taslimuddin had also said that Nitish Kumar was not a "PM material" and that he was "day dreaming of becoming the prime minister".

After the meeting, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh too had said that "The steering is in the hands of Nitish Kumar and we (RJD) are sitting on the rear seat of the vehicle and it is upto him to take the vehicle in the right direction."
