New Delhi: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav said on Monday that he would prove his detractors wrong in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
Lalu posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter - “Intellectuals who evaluate Bihar politics from AC chambers in Delhi love to write my political obituary and I love proving them wrong.”
RJD is in alliance with Congress and NCP in Bihar for the General Elections.
Lalu is hoping to do well in these polls in the backdrop of JD(U) splitting with BJP last year over the ascension of Gujarat CM Narendra Modi in his party. He is hoping that the famed Muslim-Yadav votes will consolidate behind him.
Modi is BJP's PM candidate for Lok Sabha polls.
Though Lalu is not contesting the polls, as he barred from doing so after being convicted in Fodder scam, his wife and former Bihar CM Rabri Devi is contesting from Saran and his eldest daughter Misa Bharti is RJD's candidate from Pataliputra.
Meanwhile, BJP is hoping to ride on the so-called Modi-wave and bag more than twenty seats in Bihar.
The counting of votes is scheduled for May 16.
