Patna: RJD chief Lalu Yadav has declared a war against the BJP. Showing signs of unity top leaders from opposition parties shared a stage during ‘BJP Bhagao Desh Bachao rally’ organised by RJD in Patna on Sunday.
RJD chief Lalu Yadav, who has already claimed that his rally will ensure the ouster of BJP-led NDA welcomed rebel JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav by publicly embracing him.
Mr Yadav’s attending the event is being seen as his defiance to the JD(U) which may initiate a stern action against him. Unfazed by JD(U)’s warning, Mr Yadav launched a veiled attack on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar while addressing the rally and said “people will not forget and forgive those who broke the alliance in Bihar to remain in power. In democracy keeping promises is important”.
He further said that “those who broke the alliance in Bihar will see a larger alliance being formed at the national level soon”. Mr Yadav’s rally also saw the participation of Trinamul chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad. Congress president Sonia Gandhi, her son Rahul and BSP chief Mayawati did not attend the rally.
