Patna, Jun 2: June seems to be the season of agitation and fasts. If Delhi is where all the action is, the ever popular RJD chief Lalu Prasad is planning his very own agitation in Bihar from June 5. He plans for a state-wide agitation on the day that coincides with the total revolution call by Jaya Prakash Narayan. The people"s movement spearheaded by him in 1974 became the Bihar movement and became an integral part of history.

Lalu wants to make his presence felt once again in Bihar politics after conceding defeat in the Bihar elections last year that saw Chief Minister Nitish Kumar back to power. After the shameful defeat Lalu had vowed that he would not speak anything about the NDA government led by Nitish Kumar for the first six months.

Lalu Prasad was quoted as saying, “I had said I will keep my mouth shut for the first six months. That deadline has elapsed. And by now, we have also known how badly the government has performed. We have to fight from here on to target the government for its failures.''

Talking about the planned agitation, state RJD chief Ramchander Purve said, “We will hit the streets on the total revolution day to highlight the problems of the common man. The RJD will stage demonstrations across all districts. District-level committees have already been set up for the purpose.''

The RJD also slammed the BJP for opposing the draft on the Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence (Access to Justice and Regulations) Bill, 2011. RJD spokesman Shakeel Ahmed Khan commented, "The chief minister should make public his stand on the matter keeping in view his 'self-confessed' secular credentials."
