Nawada, Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly and senior RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav today described Lok Sabha election as a ‘big battle’, not being fought for a person or an alliance but to save the constitution.
Addressing an election meeting at ITI ground here, Mr Yadav said that nobody dared to interfere with the constitution till his father RJD chief Lalu Prasad was at the helm of affairs (power) but he was sent to jail under a well-planned conspiracy.
He said that RJD chief Mr Prasad had worked hard to lend a voice to poor, Dalits and backward castes in the state. He accused the Centre and Bihar government of suppressing the voice of downtrodden sections of the society and trampling their rights.
The Leader of Opposition Mr Yadav said that the condition of farmers in the entire country was pitiable as their situation was worsening every day. The double engine government of Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar was proving a failure in improving the situation of farmers, he added.
“What is happening in Bihar presently, it is a matter of concern as common people are going to face more serious problems in days to come,” he said.
RJD leader said that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar took a political turn due to fear of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He also exhorted people to cast their votes in favour of RJD candidate Vibha Devi from Nawada Lok Sabha constituency and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) candidate Dhirendra Kumar Singh in by-election to Nawada assembly constituency.
