Claiming that the strike called by RJD and LJP in Bihar against fuel price rise was a "complete flop", the BJP today said the two parties had lost credibility when they sided with the Congress during the cut-motion in Lok Sabha recently.

"The Bihar Bandh against fuel price rise today was a complete flop. Lalu Prasad and Ram Vilas Paswan have no credibility. Their double standards were exposed when they voted with the government during the recent cut-motion against price rise in Parliament," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan were among 5,200 activists of the two parties who courted arrest today while enforcing the bandh.

The BJP alleged that the two parties did not have much support in Bihar and had "forcibly" tried to implement the strike.

RJD and LJP supporters disrupted train services and most shops remained closed during the strike. The national highways passing through the state and other major roads also remained closed.

Paswan claimed that the strike against rise in prices of fuel was a "grand success".
