Accusing the Nitish Kumar government of failing to reign in activities of Maoists in Bihar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Chief Lalu Prasad on Friday called for initiation of dialogue with the ultras for a lasting solution to the problem.

"The Nitish Kumar government has been a failure on all fronts," he told a conference in Patna on the occasion of 'Vijaya Diwas' celebrated in the memory of freedom fighter Babu Veer Kunwar Singh.

Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ramvilas Paswan, who was present at the programme, said the RJD-LJP alliance in Bihar is 'rock solid' and set to replace the National Democratic Alliance government of Nitish Kumar in the Assembly polls later this year.

"Our (LJP) alliance with RJD is intact and rock solid...We are set to throw the corrupt, ineffective and inefficient Nitish Kumar government out of power in Bihar," he said.

Asking his party men to cooperate and work in tandem with those of RJD, Paswan said time had come to uproot the NDA, which is 'represented by communal and fascist forces'.
