Patna: Central Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President Ram Vilas Paswan, along with his son Chirag Paswan, brothers Pashupati Paras and Ramchandra Paswan, and other party leaders in Patna on Tuesday celebrated the 18th anniversary of the LJP that had the usual overtone of praise for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the obligatory bashing of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) 'parivar'.
"Lalu Prasad Yadav is not upset with the withdrawal of his Z+ security cover but he is mad for losing power in Bihar. He is also upset at his eroding vote bank in the state that is driving him and his sons crazy. He was bragging about his influence in getting Nitish Kumar re-elected in the last Assembly polls so if he is that powerful, why is he crying about losing Z+ security cover?" the LJP chief said.
Continuing to tear into the Lalu clan, the Central Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution said that while Chief Minister Nitish Kumar symbolized good governance, Lalu Prasad Yadav, on the other hand, was synonymous with corruption and everything bad about Bihar.
"What kind of son he is raising who talks about skinning the Prime Minister of India. Is this what he has taught his sons in moral values? It wouldn't be a surprise that one day he would say the same thing about the Prime Minister. He is like a termite whose ery core and every fiber in the body screams of corruption. Given these facts, how he could he talk about development in the state?" Paswan lashed out at the Lalu family.
The Union Minister then turned his focus towards Narendra Modi saying under his leadership, India's respect in the world had skyrocketed and corruption was on the verge of being eradicated thanks to Modi's demonetization policies.
"While demonetization has helped curb corruption and terrorism in the nation, Goods and Service Tax (GST) is being proven a boon to the general public," he said.
Talking about his own party, Paswan said that the LJP had always been the voice of the poor and had battled for secularism and social justice for all.
Paswan's son Chirag, an MP from Jamui constituency in Bihar, also slammed the Lalu family saying when north Bihar was faced with one of the most severe floods in its history, instead of helping and volunteering, Lalu Prasad Yadav and his sons were busy organizing rally in Gandhi Maidan.
"Lalu Prasad Yadav and his sons need not worry about their security since most of the criminals and anti-social elements are their supporters," he said.
The party would hold a convention of its Dalit Sena on February 10 and will also organized a rally of its youth brigade on April 14," Ram Vilas Paswan said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
