New Delhi: Ever since the lost of love between RJD supremeo Lalu Yadav and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar the war of words and actions have been going on and on between the two. As if to tease Nitish Kumar, huge posters and hoardings of Tejashwi Yadav have been put where the former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar is seen in a Baahubali avtaar.
Lalu Yadav is holding a ‘BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao’ rally at Gandhi Maidan on August 27. Many prominent political leaders,who oppose the BJP and its ideologies are expected to participate in this where a galaxy of leaders from anti-BJP parties are expected to be present. The rally is said to be an attempt to bring unity among opposition parties at the national level to take on the BJP-led NDA in the 2019 Lok Sabha poll.
Earlier leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav had begun his ‘Janadesh Apman Yatra’ from East Champaran district to “expose” Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s “double speak” and his “opportunistic alliance” with the BJP to form government after dumping the Grand Alliance.
Kicking off the yatra, to protest “insult to the 2015 mandate” by Nitish Kumar, the former Deputy Chief Minister first offered an “apology” to Mahatma Gandhi near his life-size statue at Motihari, district headquarters of East Champaran, which is associated with Mahatma Gandhi’s concept of satyagraha. Tejashwi Yadav apologised for his RJD party’s “mistake” in having joined hands with Nitish Kumar and forming the Mahagathbandhan, of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, Janata Dal-United of Nitish Kumar, and the Congress.
