Lalu's body language belies his tall return claim : BJP

Patna: The RJD-LJP combine lacked conviction in claiming victory in the ongoing assembly polls in Bihar since the electorate did not want such a government to preside over destruction again, senior BJP leader Ashwani Chaube said.

"The body language of Prasad belies his own hollow claim of a victory for his alliance in the assembly polls as he knows it fully well that the electorate will not take any regressive decision that will bring destruction for them and the state," he told reporters here.

Taunting the RJD supremo, Chaube claimed that the former's political fortunes in Bihar stood drowned forever and this election will turn out to be the "watery grave of his rani (queen) Rabri Devi who is set to lose from both Sonepur and Raghopur assembly constituencies".

The senior BJP leader said that the NDA was set to sweep the polls with an unprecedented majority by riding on the votes of the EBCs, youth and women whom the ruling coalition empowered in its previous tenure.

Chaube alleged the Congress was 'criminalising politics and making money in the assembly polls by selling tickets on hefty premium' and warned it against nursing "false hope of recovering its lost political ground by depending on criminals and people with purse strings".

"The Congress has institutionalised corruption in the country and the sale of assembly tickets in Bihar is the latest example of its bid to vitiate the political system for monetary gains," the BJP leader alleged.
