Patna: Asserting that the Congress was not in contest in the approaching Bihar elections and rather concentrating on strengthening its organisation, RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Wednesday said vote for the Congress would mean helping the BJP.

''Congress is nowhere in the contest in the elections... the party is looking ?t its future and building up its organisation,'' Prasad said and asked the partymen to remain united and make people aware of the Congress' gameplan for 'helping the saffrons'.

He expressed confidence while holding a meeting with his partymen at the RJD office here that the RJD-LJP alliance would come to power in Bihar.

Referring to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's statement that his government would further promote investments in the state, Prasad alleged, ''It is a statement to fool the people.''

He said not a single industry had come up in Bihar and that in the name of development, only corruption had flourished, evident from the CAG report that highlighted irregularities in the implementation of welfare and development projects in the state.
