Patna, Aug 12: Sadhu Yadav, best known as estranged brother in law of Lalu Prasad Yadav is all set to form a third front ahead of coming Bihar Assembly election. Sadhu Yadav who severed his ties with his mentor Lalu long time back in 2009, had recently formed a new outfit, Garib Janata Dal-Secular.

"The third front will be strong alternative for the people who are fed with both the alliances. No government will be formed in Bihar without the third front", Sadhu was quoted by India Today.

To materalise his plan by bringing like minded leaders together, reportedly he held a meeting with former union minister Nagmani and former BJP MP Capt Jai Narain Prasad Nishad in Patna recently.

Apparently, Sadhu wants to give tough competition to Modi led BJP and grand alliance of RJD and JD(U) in the coming polls.

Brimming with confidence about his party's performance in coming election, Sadhu said that when AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal can turn the tide in his favour in Delhi election, why can't he do the same in the state polls.

Former Gopalganj MP has also lashed out at both Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar saying they are just making people fool and are least concerned about their genuine problems .

"Both the leaders are busy in image-building theatrics by displaying their posters and hoardings. It does not make any difference to them whether the poor stay alive or die, he said.

Hitting out at Prime Minister who recently did rally in the Gaya, Sadhu Yadav said, "the poor people of Bihar were hoping that the prime minister would announce some sops for them during his rally in Gaya on Sunday but they had to return empty-handed just the way they did after his Muzaffarpur rally last month."

Sadhu Ydav who has been heaping praise on PM till date, has criticized him first time.
Maintaining angry tone, former MP Sadhu also spewed venom on incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Holding Kumar responsible for worse situation of the poor in the State, he said, "The poor are running from pillar to post to get the government coupons for ration and kerosene but Nitish was engaged in putting up huge posters and hoardings claiming that Bihar was progressing fast".

Controversial Sadhu Yadav is known for running parallel government when Lalu Yadav was in the power in the State. Ahead of 2009 Lok Sabha election, Rabri Devi's brother Sadhu had joined Congress after RJD decided not to pamper him by giving him ticket of his choice.

In run up to 2014 Lok Sabha election, Sadhu tried to join Modi led BJP, but things didn't work out after Bihar BJP leaders rejected the idea.
