LJP President Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday slammed his JD(U) counterpart Sharad Yadav for his alleged personal and inflammatory remarks against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and said such objectionable remarks did not behove of a leader like him.
"It does not behove well of the leader of the stature of the JD(U) President to have reportedly made such an objectionable remark," he told reporters in reply to a question.
Addressing an election meeting, Yadav had attacked the Gandhi-Nehru family, saying Rahul Gandhi should be thrown away into the Ganga though, he later clarified that he had not made a "categorical personal remark against anyone."
All of us are fighting political and electoral battle in the ongoing Bihar Assembly polls and, therefore, we should stick to political issues only, Paswan said at a press briefing in Patna.
Taking a dig at the ruling NDA, the LJP supremo said that Yadav made personal comments against Rahul apparently worried over Congress making inroads in the vote bank of the ruling coalition.
The Congress has been consistently exposing the NDA government's tall claim about development in Bihar and that is why NDA leaders were going overboard, he alleged.
While disapproving Sharad's reported barbs at the Amethi MP, Paswan said Congress was unlikely to improve its position at the hustings.
The LJP supremo fired a fresh salvo at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar accusing him of failing to fulfil various promises made at the time of 2005 polls.
