Charging the RJD Government in Bihar with 'misgovernance and being responsible for the bad law and order situation', Union Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said the 'proxy government of Laloo Prasad Yadav' would not be in power for long after the next Lok Sabha polls which is expected to give the NDA 'a spectacular victory'.

"People of the state are fed up with the misgovernance in Bihar. Even today the papers are full of reports of murder, abduction, rape and loot", Singh, in charge of BJP election campaign in state, told a press conference here.

The people of Bihar wanted to get rid of the "proxy government of RJD supremo Laloo Prasad Yadav", he said, maintaining that "a spectacular showing of the NDA in the coming Lok Sabha polls would pave the way for bidding farewell to the RJD government," Singh said.

Asked whether he was hinting at imposition of President's rule in Bihar in the event of NDA returning to power, Singh said "whatever I had to say I have said."

When his attention was drawn to Defence Minister and NDA Convenor George Fernandes' statement about invoking Article 356 in Bihar after the polls, Singh said "I will not say anything other than what I have stated on Bihar. People of Bihar are conscious citizens".
