Patna: Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) President and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha, at a press conference in Patna on Tuesday, urged all parties to join hands in the Janata Dal – U-sponsored human chain on January 21 against dowry and child marriage system while also appealing all parties to help him make his own human chain successful in Bihar on January 30.

"We are organizing a human chain on January 30th at every Panchayat school in Bihar to spread awareness about the importance of education and the right to education in today's age. Both rallies are an attempt to spread awareness about the social ills and I would sincerely appeal to all parties, including the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), to help us make these two events successful.

The RLSP-sponsored human chain would last roughly about half an hour starting at 11:30 am during which both adults and children will take pledge to pursue education for themselves and their children or other members of the family, Kushwaha, a member of the BJP-led NDA government at the Center, said.

Earlier, the Central leader expressed his sympathy for RJD President Lalu Prasad Yadav saying his entire family was going through a bad period though they should cooperate with the judiciary to bring an end to all controversies.

Kushwaha also shrugged off any suggestion of rift with other NDA leaders after he failed to show up at the Makar Sankranti feast sponsored by the BJP and the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan.

"I could not attend them because I was in Hyderabad last Sunday," he said.

Bhagwan Singh, Dashai Chowdhary, Nagmani were among many who were present at the press conference.
