The RJD-JD(U) alliance is the need of the hour, said Lalu. "Mandal forces will have to unite to trounce kamandal", he told ET ion the interview.
Lalu also slammed BJP for being 'communal'."Our apprehension that the country might disintegrate is turning out to be true. The whole country has seen how a fasting Muslim was forced to eat by a Shiva Sena MP. They have captured power by duping the people and now they want to force their communal agenda on the people, he said.
Regarding BJP's accusation that JD(U)RJD if voted back would see return of 'jungle raj', Lalu said, BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi who said this has caused incalculable damage to Bihar with his rhetoric".
Repeating that RJD-JD(U) alliance is a natural one, Lalu said that the two parties and Congress will contest the byelections together.
"The Mandal express has already embarked on its journey. Bihar's political experiment will be replicated in other states to trounce the communal forces. Even Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav should come together to protect the unity of the country", said Lalu.
