The RJD-LJP combine on Thursday embarked on a joint campaign asking the people not to vote for "communal" combinations in Bihar as Railway minister Lalu Prasad said senior BJP leader L K Advani was not ordained to become next prime minister.
Launching a joint campaign with his LJP counterpart Ram Vilas Paswan in Nawada, RJD supremo Prasad claimed Advani would never become prime minister of India.
"Advani ki bhagya rekha mein pradhan mantri banana nahin likha hai (Advani is not destined to be become prime minister)", Prasad said, adding NDA was "a divided house with clash on the leadership issue."
Trying to muster support for LJP candidate from Nawada Lok Sabha constituency Veena Singh, Prasad appealed to the people to vote for the secular alliance between his party and LJP to keep "communal" forces at bay.
The RJD leader said his party's alliance with LJP would continue in future.
He castigated the state's NDA government for making appointments on +contract basis.+
Prasad accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of "sitting on the lap of communal forces".
"On one hand, Nitishji talks much of having a secular face and at the same time he is fighting the electoral battle in alliance with communal and fascist forces", he alleged and remarked that Nitish's secular credentials had already been "exposed."
