Patna: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Tuesday alleged that the JD(U) and BJP were confusing people by taking
different stand on some issues before the Assembly Elections.
"BJP and JD(U) are trying to confuse the people at
the time of elections," Prasad said reacting to JD(U) leader
Shivanand Tiwari`s demand for reconsidering ties with the BJP
in the wake of BJP announcement that Gujarat Chief Minister
Narendra Modi would canvass in the state.
"Tiwari is the right hand man of Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar, but I have a doubt that Nitish will snap ties
with the BJP," he said.
Criticising the five-year rule of Nitish Kumar,
Prasad said the Lakhisarai encounter between police and
Maoists was a testimony to the fact that Nitish had brought
"maha jungle raj" in Bihar.
He said the state government was an abject failure
to handle the hostage crisis. It was only because of media,
appeals from all political parties and intellectuals, the
Maoists had let off the three policemen.
