Patna: Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar
Sushil Kumar Modi today charged RJD chief Lalu Prasad and LJP
leader Ram Vilas Paswan with deceiving the upper caste by
proposing 10 per cent job quota for them in the event of the
RJD-LJP combine`s return to power, but asserted no "such
temptation" will bring these communities to their fold.
The RJD-LJP combine has sought to `hoodwink` the upper
caste into voting for them in the coming assembly polls by
proposing 10 per cent job reservation despite the knowledge
that it was difficult to translate the promise into action,
Modi said in a statement.
But the `wary` upper castes, `humiliated` by the
RJD-led government for 15 years, will never vote for the
opposition alliance for its ideology, the Deputy CM said.
Modi also alleged selective discrimination in
distribution of compensation to the victims of the `mass
murder cases` during Prasad`s party`s tenure.
Claiming that both Prasad and Paswan lost their
credibility and relevance in the state politics following a
massive defeat in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, the senior BJP
leader said "no amount of cajoling will bring the upper castes
or for that matter, pro-development voters," in the kitty of
the opposition combine.
