Patna: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad today exhorted
all its ticket aspirants to translate their influence among
the masses into votes for the RJD-LJP coalition`s victory in
the Bihar Assembly polls in October-November.
"You (ticket aspirants) should not lose heart if the
party ticket does not come your way... you should seek to
translate your support base in masses into votes in order to
ensure the victory of RJD-LJP combine," he said at an open
question-and-answer session with some prospective candidates.
"I have heard your claim for the party ticket and I
assure you all that the most suitable candidates will be given
tickets to contest the polls... now all of you should return
to your constituencies and start electioneering on behalf of
the RJD-LJP alliance, Prasad said.
Stating that the objective of the RJD-led alliance`s
victory at the hustings should be of paramount concern to the
party workers and leaders, Prasad said the rehabilitation of
the committed workers will be taken care of following
formation of his government in the state.
Prasad, who had parted with 75 seats to Ram Vilas
Paswan`s LJP and kept the remaining 168 seats with it, told
his partymen to treat the alliance as one party and
accordingly strive for the victory of all 243 candidates.
