Patna: The ruling Janata Dal (United) today
rapped the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) for being a "haven" of
rowdy and gun wielding elements in its ranks reminiscent of
its days in power and said that the party will display
"similar political culture" if it gets back to power in Bihar.
The incident in the RJD office two days ago when a youth
leader Dhananjaya Sharma pulled out a revolver at his party
colleague was a pointer to the image of that party as a "hub
of criminal and anti-social elements," the state unit JD(U)
President Vijay Kumar Chaudhary told reporters here.
It was not at all surprising that the the RJD leaders
pointed guns at each other in brazen display of the "criminal
culture" in their party, he said, adding the event also
indicated at the things to come if the RJD returned to power.
Meanwhile, in a boost to the ruling party more than 30
people from the backward Teli community joined it and pledged
support to it in the assembly polls due later this year.
