Patna (Bihar) [India]: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Friday averred that the grand alliance in Bihar is an unbreakable bond.
In an exclusive interview to ANI, Yadav said that the RJD will not let the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) break the alliance between JD(U), Congress and the RJD.
“For us the priority is the Presidential elections. There are reports of rift in the alliance. Media reports are showing that Sonia ji has held talks with me and Nitish ji, all this is false. Our alliance is unbreakable. The RJD will not give the BJP and the RSS any space to entre Bihar. This all song and dance with the CBI reports and the ED reports is an attempt by the BJP to break our alliance in Bihar,” said Yadav.
“All tangible and intangible assets of Lalu Yadav and his family are in public domain. The RJD will not let anybody break our alliance,” he added.
After JD(U) urged Tejashwi Yadav to come out clean on the corruption charges imposed by the CBI and the ED and asked Lalu to declare his assets and reveal the source of income, the rift between the alliance partners in the state seemed to have widened and indicated that the ruling grand alliance is inching towards a split.
