Patna: The main opposition RJD was hopeful of
revival of its fortunes only on the agenda of social justice.
"There is no no need to tinker our core agenda of social
justice for whatsoever purpose," the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad
"Why should we alter our ideology?....we have always
and seriously believed in the social justice agenda to connect
with the masses and there is no need to alter our time-tested
ideology," he said.
Apparently indicating that his party`s electoral
drubbings - Bihar assembly polls in 2005 and 2010 and 2009 Lok
Sabha polls - could not be faulted to its ideology, Prasad
said that it was the same set of people who had catapulted the
RJD to the seat of power in Bihar will rally behind it once
again after realising their folly of backing the NDA to power.
The RJD will step up efforts to connect with its core
support base and it will be done in a concerted manner, the
RJD supremo said.
However, there are discordant voices in the main
opposition party in Bihar on its continuing thrust on social
justice formula for electoral success in future, a RJD leader
said on the condition of anonymity.
