Patna : The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Monday dared the BJP to declare its chief ministerial candidate for the upcoming Bihar assembly elections scheduled in September- October this year, or accept that it was ‘nirvansh’ (childless).

“I am demanding from the BJP to either show the face of its Chief Ministerial candidate or accept that there is nobody in its dynasty and it is ‘nirvansh’ (childless),” Prasad said.

Attacking the saffron party, Prasad said he was now sure that the BJP would not declare any chief ministerial candidate for the state polls to serve its “selfish interests” and indulge in divisive caste politics in the state, reports PTI.

“Just like the last Lok Sabha polls, the BJP will rely on its divisive gimmick. It will go among the Yadavs and tell them that Hukumdeo Narayan Yadav will be the Chief Minister. It will go to Patna City and tell the people there that their MLA Nand Kishore Yadav, who is opposed to Sushil Kumar Modi, will become the CM,” Yadav said.

Yadav claimed that in the same manner the BJP will go among the Bhumihars and tell them that C P Thakur will be their CM. Likewise, it will go to the Rajputs and tell that Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh will become the CM, and will tell the Brahmins that somebody from their caste will be the Chief Minister.       “There is ‘khot’ (bad intention) in the mind of BJP. It should clear its stand before the polls without trying to cheat people, or accept that it is a childless party,” he said.

The RJD chief was speaking to media persons after holding a meeting of MLAs, MLCs, leaders, party officials and workers of Patna division to chalk out a strategy for upcoming state polls.
