Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil
Kumar Modi Tuesday claimed that NDA will form the next
government with a thumping majority in the state, relegating
the caste factor played by the opposition.
"The caste factor being played by opposition parties
like RJD-LJP combine and Congress will be relegated to the
background for the first time in Bihar and the polls will
witness people rising above narrow caste considerations who
will elect their representatives on the basis of development,"
Modi told a press conference here.
The trend was discernible during the Lok Sabha polls last
year when NDA secured 32 out of the 40 parliamentary seats in
the state, he said.
Modi criticised RJD chief Lalu Prasad and LJP president
Ramvilas Paswan for not taking lessons from the past and
claimed that they would be relegated to the background
after the coming assembly elections.
"I must say that the two leaders were living in fools
paradise as development has taken over the caste agenda
pursued by them and people will vote to rid the state of
jungle raj of the erstwhile RJD government to bring the state
back on rails," Modi said.
