Patna , Feb.25: Reitirating his allegations against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of conspiring to break his party, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Tuesday said his aim is to make Bihar free of Nitish Kumar and India free of Narendra Modi.
“Nitish is giving crores of rupees in the form of bribe to people. He is trying to tarnish my image,” Lalu told media here.
“They have been exposed; they have a hidden agenda. Narendra Modi and Nitish are together,” he added.
Earlier, in show of strength, Lalu marched along with nine MLAs’ to the Bihar assembly.
Nitish Kumar had rejected Lalu’s allegations of conspiring to break his party and said, “Lalu has been engineering a split in other parties all his life, and now, he is blaming me for the disturbances in his party.”
Kumar’s reaction came shortly after Lalu blamed him for hatching a “conspiracy” to break his party.
” Nitish Kumar has gone mad after divorcing the Bharatiya Janata Party. He has conspired along with the speaker to break the party. In fact, this conspiracy could be compared with America’s Watergates scandal,” he said.
“I have brought some papers to prove it. The person with whom he had planned the conspiracy was working under me, and now Nitish has made him a speaker,” he said.
“Both the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the BJP are conspiring to split my party, but I will not let them to be successful in their motives. I have a meeting today with all the party members and I am going to expose them in front of nation,” he added.
In a jolt to Lalu Prasad, thirteen of the 22 RJD MLAs quit the party yesterday.
But six of them later claimed that they are not part of the breakaway faction. The MLAs even claimed that their fake signatures were used to seek separate sitting place in the assembly.
