Patna: Hitting out at Congress for its decision to distance itself from Lalu Prasad ahead of the assembly polls in Bihar, ruling Janata Dal(U) today said it would not negate the impact of its support to successive RJD government in the past in ruining the state.

The Congress stand was a 'political eye wash' with an aim to seek the votes of anti-Lalu forces in the coming assembly polls in the state, Bihar JD(U) general secretary-cum-spokesman Sambhu Nath Singh said in a statement.

"Congress wants to play the role of 'vote katwa' (vote catcher), he said.

Continuing his criticism, Sinha said "The Congress cannot forget the fact that it had extended unconditional support to RJD governments in Bihar in the past during which the state witnessed anarchy and economic ruin."

The Congress, he said, was as much guilty as Lalu Prasad for plunging the state in backwardness and anarchy. The collusion between the two parties was proved recently when the UPA government at the Centre did not give permission to CBI to challenge the disproportionate assets case against Prasad in spite of the investigative agency's claim that it had clinching evidence against him.

Singh, however, claimed that the voters would not be swayed by the changed 'political tactics' of Congress, which may still tie up with RJD.
