Bihar Assembly elections forged on deceit: Raghubar Das

News Agencies | Updated on: 13 February 2017, 3:42 IST

Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today alleged the JDU-RJD-Congress pre-poll alliance for the Bihar Assembly elections "is forged on deceit, drama and arrogance" and asserted that their leaders will face a repeat of the 2014 Lok Sabha election results.

"The DNA of the JDU-RJD-Congress alliance in Bihar is dhoka, nautanki and ahankar (deceit, drama and arrogance)," Das said at a press conference here.

He was reacting to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar taking exception to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'DNA' remark against Kumar during a recent public meeting in Bihar.

Responding to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's reported comments that a 'Mahabharat' had begun in Bihar, Das sought to remind the former Bihar chief minister how a character of the epic, Duryodhana, met his doom due to his arrogance.

"The people will vote for BJP in Bihar," Das claimed and referred to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections when the Congress and its allies bit the dust fighting under the "undeclared leadership" of Rahul Gandhi.
