Verdict a pointer to 2014, claims Lalu

Emboldened by the RJD's emphatic win in the Maharajganj byelection, party chief Lalu Prasad on Wednesday dubbed the victory as "a victory of the people of Bihar as well as a mandate reflecting the rejection of the faulty policies and misrule of the Nitish Kumar government".

In an interview to NDTV, Prasad described the by-poll as a "test case" and urged people to defeat the JDU in all the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state to prevent "fascist forces" from occupying Delhi in next general elections.

Slamming the NDA government in the state for poor infrastructure, corruption and law and order, he said that the result in the state is indicative of the national mood and will have a huge impact on national politics.
