Coming to the defence of Congress in the Coalgate case,RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav today said BJP leader Sushma Swaraj and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar need not give certificate as to who is honest and who is corrupt in the UPA government.
“Who is Sushma Swaraj to comment on Sonia Gandhi and the UPA government…she need not give certificate to the central government,” Prasad told reporters.
RJD is supporting Manmohan Singh government from outside.
He also assailed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for making strong remarks on the UPA government in the wake of Supreme Court’s strong comments on coal scam issue.
“The Central government will reply to the Supreme Court…why Sushma and Nitish are feeling pain?” Prasad,Lok Sabha member from Chhapra,wondered.
The RJD supremo flagged-off a Rath Yatra of his party to mobilise people for a party rally at Gandhi Maidan on May 15.
The rally is seen as Prasad’s show of strength before the 2014 elections and also an effort to oust the NDA government in the state headed by Nitish Kumar,from power.
