Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Friday criticised RJD chief Laloo Prasad Yadav for allegedly calling upon Naxalites to vote against the BJP in the coming Lok Sabha elections.

Munda alleged that Yadav's appeal to the Naxalites, made in an election meeting at Chatra recently, was aimed at destabilising Jharkhand, creation of which was vehemently protested by Yadav.

The RJD, Congress and JMM had no contribution in the state's development, he told reporters here alleging that the trio joined hands to win polls at any cost.

Questioning the basis on which they stitched together the alliance, Munda asked the JMM and Congress leaders of Jharkhand that they should make their stand clear as Yadav's RJD did not want separation.

"Jharkhand is moving ahead on the path of development after bifurcation while Bihar is still suffering under the RJD leader," he said.
