Patna: Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley on Monday
alleged that the Congress, Lalu Prasad`s RJD and Ramvilas
Paswan`s LJP were part of a single political family and
asserted that crticism of each other was a ploy to mislead
the people.

"Congress, RJD and LJP are the parties of a single
political family... their becoming bitter criticis of each
other at the time of elections is just to mislead the people",
Jaitley said.

He was apparently reacting to RJD vice president
Raghuvansh Prasad Singh`s statement that breaking his party`s
ties with the Congress was +a big blunder+ and he would seek
support from secular parties, including the Congress, for
forming the government.

Jaitley asserted that the Congress and RJD-LJP combine
were bound to suffer major electoral resverses this time and
the NDA led by Nitish Kumar would form the government once
again with thumping majority.
