Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leaders led by Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi’s younger son Tejaswi Yadav, gathered at the Miller High School playground to celebrate the birth anniversary of former Bihar Chief Minister Karpoori Thakur though the topic soon turned into politics and the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Speaking on the occasion, Tej Pratap Yadav, former Bihar Health Minister, announced plans to launch 'LP Agitation' in Bihar on the pattern of Lok Nayak Jaya Prakash Narayan's 'JP Agitation' in the '70s.

After the customary praise for the person being remembered and honored, it was all about the opposite camp, namely the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Janata Dal – U who were understandably portrayed in the negative light in terms of development, human rights, unemployment, broken promises, and ‘fake Karpoori disciples’ who hurled abuse at the socialist leader when he was alive but began celebrating his birthday after he was dead.

“Just as the JP movement, we are going to launch the LP movement named after my father Lalu Prasad. This agitation will be a fight for the youths of Bihar and will have the slogan of ‘Berozgari Hatao, Arakshan Badhao’ (Remove unemployment, increase reservation).,” said the former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.

The former Health Minister exhorted party supporters to brace jail terms and even face bullets in order to fulfill the dreams of Karpoori Thakur and his father Lalu Prasad Yadav.

“We would rather face bullets than being intimidated by the RSS-BJP forces,” he said.

Tej Pratap Yadav, after going on a self-imposed exile in the midst of his divorce proceedings and then making an abrupt entry claiming he was ready to play bigger role in his father’s party, blessed his younger brother saying Arjun, read Tejaswi Yadav, cannot fire an arrow without the help of his Krishna, meaning himself.

“We will fill the jails in the LP movement and if needed, bust open the prison wall to free Laluji,” Tej Pratap thundered, who continues to show flair for melodrama, thundered.
