JD(U) criticises RJD for not vacating Parl space

JD(U)Chief spokesman Sanjay Singh said, TC with 26 MPs is now UPA`s biggest ally and was entitled to a better space.

Patna: Ruling JD (U) in Bihar, on Friday accused RJD Chief Lalu Prasad of `defaming` the state by his party`s reluctance to vacate the space allotted to it in Parliament.

A large space had been allotted by the erstwhile UPA I government at the Centre, when RJD was its biggest ally.

``RJD`s protest over vacating the room now alloted to Trinamool Congress(TC) and shifting to a smaller space marked for its 8 MPs is unwarranted and unjustified ... It doesn`t speak well for a politician of standing like Prasad,`` JD(U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh said.

TC with 26 MPs is now UPA`s biggest ally and was entitled to a better space, he said.

It would have been better, if Prasad had utilised his energy for helping in the development of the state, Singh added.

``We will not vacate the room. We will fight for it,`` RJD leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh had said.
