Ranchi, Feb 14 (UNI) Deviating from her usual rhetorics against the Nitish Kumar-led NDA government in Bihar, former Bihar Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Rabri Devi today picked NDA's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani.

''I ask you what future you expect from a person who was instrumental in demolishing mosques and fomenting communal passion across the country,'' she asked party workers who gathered at ''Chetna'' rally at Morhabadi ground here.

Ms Devi said, ''Should we hand over power to such persons'' adding that at no cost should it be allowed to happen.

''Then we must remain united at this critical hour as disruptive forces are again rearing their ugly heads to usher fresh era of communal disturbance, '' she stated.

She got kudos for what she uttered from none other than her husband and RJD president Lalu Prasad, who echoed the same, saying his party was growing stronger day by day and was ready to ''crush'' such forces.

Ms Devi then stressed the need for strengthening party and urged the workers to shed petty interests, asserting that the day was not far when the RJD would form its own government not only in Bihar but in Jharkhand as well.

While her speech turned to the Bihar Government, she made no bones about expressing her displeasure over the media reports, saying they were actually now running the NDA Government there.

The media was not bringing to light the ''misdeeds'' of the Nitish Kumar Government.

She urged the journalists to visit every corner of Bihar to realise the ground realities and open the eyes of people.

''The media, during the RJD rule in Bihar, was relentlessly projecting that our rule rule was nothing but jungle raj,'' she said.

But there was no iota of truth in their repotrs, she said.

Referring to the UPA-backed Madhu Koda Government in Jharkhand, she said the Chief Minister was working efficiently and running the state much better than Bihar.
