JD(U) demands stern action against RJD leaders for statements against Nitish Kumar

After two senior RJD leaders made strong statements against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the law and order situation in the state, the JD(U) appealed to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad to take action against them.

The party said that statements made by RJD leaders Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Mohammad Taslimuddin were "against the principles" of the 'Mahagathbandhan dharma'.

"We have requested the RJD boss Lalu Prasad jee to take action against both Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Mohammad Taslimuddin. Either these leaders should be kept under control or be suspended (from the party)," said JD(U) chief spokesman Sanjay Singh.

The spokesman said JD(U) does not attach importance to Taslimuddin at all, adding, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh has also been "derailed" ever since he lost Lok Sabha elections to LJP's Rama Singh.

Raghuvansh Prasad Singh has gone into "political coma", the JD(U) chief spokesman alleged, accusing Singh of continuously making statements against Nitish Kumar, which he claimed was not healthy for the alliance.

Meanwhile, former union minister and Araria Lok Sabha member Taslimuddin today once again trained his gun at the Nitish Kumar government urging the RJD boss to snap its ties with JD(U).

"I have asked Lalu Prasad to snap its alliance with JD(U) ...I want it to happen today itself but there is Lalu Prasad in between," Taslimuddin said.

He further said that the chief minister should first set things in order in Bihar before undertaking a nation-wide campaign on prohibition.

The Araria MP had said that Nitish Kumar should quit as he has failed to tackle the law and order situation. Earlier, Taslimuddin had stated that Nitish Kumar was not "PM material" and that he was "day dreaming of becoming the prime minister".
