Patna: BJP on Saturday charged RJD chief Lalu
Prasad with playing a "villainous" role at the behest of
Congress to ensure that the Lokpal Bill was not passed in the
Rajya Sabha.

"Laluji plays a villainous role in the script written by
Congress to ensure that the Bill was not passed in the Rajya
Sabha," BJP spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here.

BJP was ready for debate on the issue even after
midnight on December 29, but Congress under a well-hatched
conspiracy forced an abrupt end of the debate, he said.

The BJP leader said that his party had decided to
launch `Save Democracy-Remove Congress` campaign across the
country from January three for eight days. "We`ll hold
nation-wide sit-in during the period," he said.

A BJP delegation jointly led by LK Advani and party
president Nitin Gadkari would organise a march to Rashtrapati
Bhavan on January 3 to hand over a memorandum to the
President, he said.
