Patna, Oct 7 (UNI) LJP president Ramvilas Paswan today said his party was prepared for a mid-term poll.

Mr Paswan, also the Union Steel and Fertiliser Minister, predicted a substantial change in numerical strength of the different political parties if a snap poll was held.

After inducting former MLAs -- Jakir Anwar and Parmanand Rishideo -- in his party, Mr Paswan told reporters here the speculation on mid-term poll was getting strong as the logjam over the Indo-US nuclear deal continued to linger. He said a serious dialogue between the UPA and Left parties on the issue was only a way out from this impasse.

Referring to a statement of NDA convenor George Fernandes that Nitish Kumar government should have gone long back, Mr Paswan said it was a clear testimony to the fact that NDA government in Bihar had failed on all fronts. '' Mr Fernandes was the architect of the Nitish Kumar government and his dejection expresses the fact that performance of the NDA government was far from satisfactory,'' he said, adding, the LJP was fast emerging as third alternative for the people of the state.

The LJP would take out a rally on November 28 in Patna and aggressively rake up the failures of Nitish Kumar government at public meetings in Bihar.

Mr Anwar and Mr Rishideo described their joining to LJP as ''home-coming'' and pledged to work for strengthening the party.
