Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) state president Ramchandra Purvey, at a press conference in Patna on Monday, said the party was ready for its May 15 'Parivartan Rally' in Bihar that would seek to 'expose' the Nitish-led NDA administration of its misdeeds, corruption, and lack of development in the state.
"Our party members, supporters, and workers have been working tirelessly to make the rally a grand success. They have been entrusted to drum up support for the rally in their respective districts. We are confident the rally would succeed in exposing the Nitish government that has failed on all fronts," Purvey said.
The RJD leader, confident of the rally's immense impact on the next state election, said that the party was expecting a much bigger crowd at the Gandhi Maidan that would surpass the number of the rally that was held back in 1996.
"The response that party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav received during his recent trips to various districts to gauge the mood of the people was overwhelming and we are certain that the turnout at the Gandhi Maidan would be bigger than ever before," Purvey said adding the people of Bihar were dissatisfied and frustrated with the current administration that has become synonymous with corruption, ineptitude, and bereft of any idea that would change the economic landscape of the state.
Others present on the occasion included Ram Kripal Yadav and Iliyas Hussain.
