Patna: Welcoming the six-phase poll schedule for Bihar assembly announced by the Election Commission, Lok Janashakti Party president Ramvilas Paswan today demanded steps by the EC to ensure that all booths were manned by central forces.

Central forces comprising the CRPF and BSF should man all the polling booths to ensure 'free, fair and fear-free polls', he told reporters here.

Claiming that people of the state had made up their minds to ensure that NDA is defeated, Paswan said the RJD-LJP combine had been in poll mode for the past two months. ''Now our remove Nitish campaign will be further intensified with people's support.''

The NDA government was a failure on all front and issues like unemployment, poverty, corruption and mis-governance would rev up the campaign to oust Nitish Kumar.

He accused the state government of failing to handle the Bihar hostage crisis and alleged that its claim of establishing rule of law in the state had also been exposed.
