Again training his gun at former UP Chief Minister Kalyan Singh, RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav has said that he is responsible for the demolition of Babri Masjid and RJD has nothing to do with him.
“He is the convict in the demolition of Babri Masjid. He is not a member of the Samajwadi Party,” said Lalu about Kalyan Singh, who has joined hands with the Samajwadi Party and is contesting as an Independent from Etah.
This statement of Lalu has come despite Kalyan’s attempt to distance himself from the issue saying that he knew nothing of demolition of the mosque
Banking on the Left parties’ aversion to the communal forces, Lalu also expressed confidence that UPA would form the next government at the centre after the polls.
“We are winning most of the seats and the UPA will form the government. Left Front will not support the communal forces,” he said.
RJD chief also added that no one could campaign like he does. “I am used to all this. Is there anyone who can campaign like I do? I can campaign for 24 hours,” he said.
The former Bihar chief minister is contesting Lok Sabha elections from two seats – Saran and Pataliputra, both constituencies borne out of delimitation.
Saran constituency has already gone to polls in the first phase of election of April 16, while voting will take place in Pataliputra in the fourth phase on May 7.
Lalu is facing a tough contest at Saran where is facing Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rajiv Pratap Rudy while in Pataliputra seat Janata Dal (United) candidate Ranjan Yadav is Lalu’s main opponent
