The strong 'anti-Lalu and anti-Paswan´ wave blowing across the state made it clear that the RJD-LJP alliance would face a rout, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar asserted on Friday.
"There is a strong anti-Lalu and anti-Paswan wave across Bihar as people want to see a change in governance at the Centre. It is now crystal and clear that the LJP-RJD combine will be uprooted," Kumar, the NDA convenor, said here. Asked about the poll prospects of NDA in Bihar, Kumar said, "Please wait till May 16 when the election results will be declared."
Turning to Paswan, the Steel minister, Kumar said an anti-Paswan wave was perceptible in the Hajipur parliamentary constituency and JD (U)'s Ramsunder Das, former chief minister, would definitely win this time.
Just as the people of Hajipur were determined to elect Paswan in 1977, they were firm on defeating the LJP chief this time, he claimed. Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said the NDA was fast heading towards a landslide victory to form a government at the Centre. "We are set to sweep the polls."
