Patna: Pappu Yadav, the Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) chief, who has carved out a whole new cottage industry for himself that involves vandalism, arson, and other crimes that would land any other person in jail, at a press conference in Patna on Thursday revealed his schedule for the next few days – each involving disruption of normal life in one way or the other.
"We will be launching the second phase of our 'Nari Bachao' rally from Muzaffarpur on Friday and will end it at Shaheed Smarak in Patna on Sunday. Then on September 20th, we will begin our agitation against the 'medical mafia' in Bihar," the MP from Madhepura said.
Afraid he was losing support of people in the run up of next year's Lok Sabha elections, Yadav said his party, in alliance with 'like-minded' parties, would run at three seats in Bihar though he would have no truck with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).
"I have no problem joining hands with the Congress Party but alliance with the RJD is out of question. This party without Lalu Prasad Yadav is nothing. I have to say that it is the family members of Lalu Prasad Yadav who are trying to kill him. They don't want him to be released from jail. Today whatever situation the RJD chief is, it is because of the misdeeds of his two sons," the JAP leader who once was the beloved protégé of Lalu Prasad Yadav, said.
Challenging Tejaswi Yadav, RJD chief's younger son and former Deputy Chief Minister, Pappu Yadav said that Tejaswi did not have in him what his father used to have.
"I dare him to win an election on his own and not because he is the son of Lalu Prasad Yadav. Just to prove it, I am prepared to fight election from the same constituency from where Tejaswi Yadav will be contesting and then we will know how much powerful he is," he said.
Yadav also said that he has issued notice to a number of RJD and JD-U leaders for alleging that they were his supporters who engaged in arson, vandalism, and other criminal acts during this week's Bharat Bandh in Bihar.
"Only one of my supporters was found to be engaging in damaging a car; all others were RJD workers. But in the media, they only blamed my party. I have sent them notices for making false allegations and for calling me 'an agent of the NDA'," the Madhepura MP said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
