Paswan calls for overthrow of RJD Government

PATNA, SEPT. 27. Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan today charged the Rabri Devi Government with ``failing'' on all-fronts and called for change of power for the development of Bihar.

"The RJD Government has neither a vision nor a plan for the development of Bihar. There is an urgent need to overthrow this government in the coming Assembly election for the welfare of the people," he said addressing a function in the memory of Shahid Jagdeo Prasad here.

The LJP, which fought the recent Lok Sabha polls as part of United Progressive Alliance along with RJD and Congress, has already announced that it would go it alone in the hustings, scheduled early next year.

Mr. Paswan asserted that RJD secured 21 seats of a total of 40 in Bihar in the Lok Sabha polls because of LJP, but in the State Assembly election "they (the RJD) would come to know of their strength."

Spelling out the vision of his party if voted to power in Bihar, Mr. Paswan said a health card would be issued to the poor to provide free medicare. Besides, education up to matriculation would be made free and children would be given free meal in schools.

Many district rank leaders of JD (U), RJD and BJP joined the LJP in the presence of Mr. Paswan.

Among them was Alok Mishra, a kin of senior JD (U) leader and former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra. -- PTI
