New Delhi: Jan Kranti Adhikar Morcha (JKAM) leader Pappu Yadav on Sunday said that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Yadav have toxic relations with the Muslims and Dalits of the state.
Highlighting the way Muslims have been targeted in the Bhagalpur riots by Lalu Prasad, Yadav said: "Lalu Yadav had earlier said that RSS is the best orgnisation. And he had said in this very Lok Sabha that Bhagalpur riots happened due to muslims... Nitish Kumar has spent on more than 11 crore schemes but no one has bothered to pay compensation to the riot victims' families."
"Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar Lalu are involved in all the riots happened in Bihar. They have toxic relations with Muslims and Dalits. They are the biggest enemies of the backward classes. I demand investigation against both of them, including what Lalu Prasad had told to Ashok Singhal about muslims' involvement in the riots. The CBI should immediately investigate the cases," he added.
Pappu Yadav further said that when he comes to power, he would give the affected families of the riots their due rights.
"When I come to power, I promise to give them their rights in three months. They will get fair compensation," said Yadav.
With the Bihar Assembly elections scheduled to take place later this year, Purnea MP Pappu Yadav, after getting expelled from RJD in May, has wasted no time to set up his own Jan Adhikar Party.
His immediate goal is to field as many as 150 candidates in Bihar election.
Yadav may join hands with former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi's Hindustani Awam Morcha, or even with BJP if the saffron party accepts him as partner.
Known as a formidable political force in Bihar's Seemanchal region, Pappu Yadav's solitary aim is to scuttle Lalu Prasad's rise.
