Why is there a scramble for the legislators’ residences? Everybody will get their house in accordance with the rule, the RJD chief told a party meeting here.
Why the Lalu-Kejriwal hug became a controversy.
As Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap bent to touch the feet of Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, it marked the beginning of two political journeys that will be watched very closely as Nitish begins his third term.
Advani and Joshi formed the triumvirate of BJP along with A B Vajpayee and if they are saying something about the party, it is a serious matter,” said Nitish.
Kejriwal had supported Nitish on his ‘clean image’ while tiptoeing around his ally RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
He also asserted that no political party in the country had the power to “take away and undo” reservation guaranteed to the weaker sections in the Constitution by B R Ambedkar.
The police official said the FIR had been lodged against Prasad under various sections of the IPC and the Representation of People’s Act.
Modi, who addressed a series of rallies, asked his audience in Hajipur if they could support Nitish when he believed in superstition.
“Like slaying of Ravana on Vijaydashmi day, people of Bihar would slay the political Ravana,” Lalu Prasad told reporters.
Nitish Kumar said, “He is not merely the RJD candidate, he is my candidate”, a comment that would have been considered political fiction a year ago.
RJD leader Lalu Prasad told a rally Tuesday he had joined hands with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to “emasculate” Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The crowd, which was restless after a long wait, didn’t want him to pause — before he arrived, they had hooted out a local leader who tried to address them.
“The real Modi on display — brazen attempt to add communal texture to Bihar polls, but deafening silence on deplorable incident of Dadri,” Nitish Kumar said.
Lalu Prasad had held back Tejashwi from contesting the 2014 general elections saying he was one year away from being eligible to contest elections.
The comments by the two leaders came against the backdrop of the lynching of a man in Bishada village of Uttar Pradesh recently following rumours that the family had consumed and stored beef.
