Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav on Saturday launched a book of former Janata Dal – U MP Ali Anwar at the Patna Book Fair that includes a collection of his speeches in the Rajya Sabha.

Anwar is the same leader whose Rajya Sabha membership, along with the membership of former JD-U President Sharad Yadav, was withdrawn last week after the two went against their party by fraternizing with rival Lalu Prasad Yadav in the aftermath of the collapse of the so-called Mahagathbandhan in Bihar last July.

"Shri Yadav is our leader and not Nitish Kumar. I urge Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader Upendra Kushwaha and former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi to break their ties with the NDA and join us in our fight against the communal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)," Anwar said.

Speaking on the occasion, the RJD chief said that he would put his entire might in destroying the BJP and throwing it out of power at the Center.

"I will continue to work to forge an alliance with all parties including the left parties so unitedly we uproot this communal government from power and establish a new government that is pro-people and not pro-fascists. However, in order to achieve this goal, we will need the help of Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, and southern states," Yadav, who remains convicted in fodder scam and hence barred from ever running from any public office, said.

Confident to achieve his goal, the former Chief Minister said that under the BJP rule, the nation was going through an emergency-like situation under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dictatorship but people have come to realize about the real face of the BJP and were ready to throw them out of power once and for all.
