Patna: NDA partners JD(U) and BJP today
assailed RJD chief Lalu Prasad for his remark that no upper
caste person could dream of becoming the Chief Minister of
Bihar given his social engineering.

State JD-U chief Vijay Kumar Choudhary said it showed
Prasad`s desperation "as he has become incapable of fighting
against NDA, which enjoys support from every section of the
society."

Ridiculing Prasad for his statement that upper caste
people were like "brothers", he said it proved beyond doubt
that Prasad has accepted the fact that he has always believed
in division of society on the basis of caste and creed.

"In fact, Lalu Prasad and his alliance is set to face a
rout in the October-November assembly polls," he claimed,
adding JD-U stood for support from all sections - Muslims,
upper castes, backwards or Dalits to ensure Bihar`s
development.

Lambasting Prasad, BJP state president C P Thakur said
Prasad`s statement was intended to create a divide among
different castes.
