Rajgir: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief and Central Minister for Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution Ram Vilas Paswan, on the last day of the two-day party convention in Rajgir on Friday, said that when someone as powerful as Dera Sacha Sauda leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh could not escape the long arms of the law, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family members stood no chance of avoiding conviction in all the corruption cases faced by them.

"When someone as powerful as Ram Rahim Singh who has such a huge following could not avoid being caught and convicted, I doubt Lalu Prasad Yadav and his family members have any chance of being exonerated in all corruption cases," Paswan said to his party members.

Seeming convinced of the guilt of the RJD family, the LJP President said that the fact that both Lalu Prasad Yadav and his son Tejaswi Yadav showed utter reluctance in appearing before the CBI court despite several summons to them, it was evident that something was not right with the picture.

"Daal mein sirf kala hi nahin hai, poori daal hi kali hai," Paswan said meaning the case against the Lalu family was not only true but also very strong.

The Union Minister said that his party would field its candidates in Assembly polls in many states in only those constituencies where the party showed strong chance of winning.

However, much to the disappointment of his two brothers Ramchandra Paswan, also an MP, and Pashupati Kumar Paras, a minister in the NDA government in Bihar, the LJP chief declared that after him, his son and MP from Jamui Chirag Paswan would be the head of the party.

"After me, Chirag will lead the LJP. He is young, intelligent, and is very capable of leading the party," Paswan said.

Both Ramchandra Paswan and Pashupati Kumar Paras had been in the party since its very inception and the fact that Chirag Paswan, who has been in the party for a very short period of time, will become their next boss may not go too well with them, some party leaders said.
