Chapra: Buoyed with the joining of
rebel JD(U) leader Prabhunath Singh, RJD president Lalu Prasad
on Saturday said political change in the state after the assembly
polls later this year was `inevitable`.
"It (political change) has now become inevitable ...
the ineffective Nitish Kumar government is bound to go after
the assembly polls later this year," Prasad told `a janata
mahapanchayat`, organised by Singh.
Prasad said the RJD would ensure ten per cent
reservation for the economically-backward upper caste people
in jobs in the event of its coming to power.
"I have taken a lot of lessons from the past ...
please give us a chance afresh to come upto people`s
expectations," he said.
Prasad promised that in the event of coming to power,
the services of teachers and other employees appointed on
contract during the Nitish regime would be regularised.
Praising Singh for joining the RJD, he said his
services would be used at the time of elections.
"We feel that the RJD has emerged stronger to defeat
the communal and fascist forces represented by the NDA," he
Two JD(U) MLAs Rampravesh Rai (Chapra) and Kedar Nath
Singh (Masrakh) also joined the RJD besides Singh who was Lok
Sabha member thrice from Maharajganj.
