Patna, Oct 24 (UNI) The RJD's minority cell today alleged that the Nitish Kumar government was feeling shaky over encouraging support of the minorities to the party rally slated for October 28 here.

In a release, spokesman of the state unit of minority cell Raees Azam said, the 'baseless' allegations levelled against RJD Chief and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad by JD(U)'s national general secretary Shivanand Tiwari had ''exposed the fact that the Nitish Kumar government was feeling shaky and insecure'' after the encouraging response of the minorities for the RJD rally.

''Mr Tiwari has no moral right to criticise Mr Prasad as he enjoyed the privilege of a cabinet minister during the Lalu-Rabri regime in Bihar,'' he pointed out, adding that Mr Tiwari was once a vocal critic of Mr Kumar when he had 'deserted' the Samata Party following differences.

''Never failing to claim himself a staunch socialist, Mr Tiwari had dumped the ideals of his father--Ramanand Tiwari who was a socialist in the true sense--and is now playing into the hands of communal forces after joining the JD(U) recently'', the RJD leader lamented.

Mr Azam deplored the attack on RJD workers by NDA activists when they were erecting hoardings for the party rally near Patna Junction roundabout today and described it as an ''attempt to choke democratic activities'' of political parties in Bihar.
