Patna, Jun 18 (UNI) Lok Janshakti Party(LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan today declared that his party would contest on its own the next Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Bihar.

Addressing a meeting of workers here, Mr Pasawan said he was let down several times earlier by his political allies in Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Bihar and was not prepared to meet the same fate by forging alliance with other parties during the next electoral hustings in the state.

'' If the Samta party had not been formed by creating division of the JD(U), Bihar could have got rid of the RJD in 2000 itself, '' Mr Paswan recalled and said the state had suffered most due to prevailing caste system, which also resulted in violence in several parts of Bihar earlier.

'' We should follow the ideology of great socialists - Madhu Limaye and Raj Narain - to bring revolutionary change in the society, '' he added.

'' For maintaining unity and integrity of the country, each community and section of the society should remain concerned for uplift of the other, '' Mr Paswan said adding unless this spirit did not creep in the society, the nation could not develop fast.

The LJP chief said people of Bihar had witnessed the performance of the RJD and the NDA during the past 18 years and were feeling let down by them and added that masses in the state were now pinning all hopes on the LJP to fulfil their aspirations.
