Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Lalu Prasad Yadav, on the eve of the launching of his 'Parivartan Yatra' aimed at 'exposing' Chief Minister Nitish Kumar so his party could reclaim power in the state, on Monday, embarked on a road show in Patna urging people to uproot the NDA administration in Bihar and come out in large numbers in support of his party in the next Assembly elections.

Riding on his decked up 'Parivartan Rath' – a bus converted to accommodate Yadav, his sons, and top party leaders, Yadav took to the megaphone to address curious onlookers who nodded and laughed at his jokes and one-liners for which he is famous for.

Accompanied by his son Tej Pratap, trusted lieutenant and MP Ram Kripal Yadav and other party leaders, the RJD Chief and his pre-rally road show covered Danapur, Rajapur, Chitkohra, Digha, Golghar, Sabzi Bagh, Gai Ghat and other areas in the state capital where he was warmly received by his staunch supporters and loyalists.

In his address, Yadav said that Nitish Kumar had eight years to fix Bihar but he failed to do so. "Now is the time for a change in Bihar and no one understands Bihar better than us," Yadav said.

On the allegations of him perpetuating 'dynastic rule' in Bihar by bringing his two sons into politics, a visibly irritated Yadav said that his two sons had been living under the sign of lantern, RJD's official electoral symbol, since their birth so it was only natural for them to carry the party's flag in the future.

Taking a dig at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the RJD chief said that this whole talk of special economic status for Bihar was merely a diversion tactic by the Chief Minister who had been desperately trying to hide his failures for the last eight years.

He also declared Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader from Bihar Shahnawaz Hussain as the agent of Narendra Modi who was only doing the bidding for the Gujarat Chief Minister instead of concerning himself with issues related to Bihar.
