Patna, Sep 30 (UNI) The ruling JD(U) today alleged that RJD supremo and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad had completely distorted the 'political culture' of Bihar through his series of rallies.
JD(U) National General Secretary and Spokesperson Shivanand Tiwari here said the Chetna rally of RJD scheduled on October 28 in the state capital would in fact benefit the JD(U).
''Mr Prasad was in habit of gathering large number of people for rallies and in the name of entertainment, the party crossed all the limits,'' he alleged and added, ''Obscene dance parties with free supply of liquor at the official residences of RJD MPs, MLAs and leaders throw the entire state capital in a mess.'' Reacting to comments, Mr Tiwari said that by talking about 'jangal raj' and 'Maha jangalraj', Mr Prasad has in fact tried to recall the situation the state has faced during the RJD regime.
''Freely roaming musclemen, open display of firearms by the goons and other such incidents, which were common during the RJD rule, were still fresh in the memory of the people,'' Mr Tiwari said.
He further alleged that Mr Prasad was an ''autocrat'' and ''egoist'' leader, which is evident from the seating arrangements made during meetings of RJD. ''It is an open testimony of the feudal mentality of Mr Prasad. The RJD supremo were always seen sitting on a chair when the other senior leaders of the party were made to sit on the floor.
