Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav, relegated to commuting between Patna and Ranchi in connection with the fodder scam and holding rallies and maha-rallies at Patna Gandhi Maidan since the collapse of the Mahagathbandhan government in Bihar, at a press conference in Patna on Diwali day, said he would soon organize another massive rally in Patna to expose the corrupt NDA government in Bihar.

Apparently not satisfied with the success of his last 'BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao' rally in Patna last August, Yadav, who faces a host of corruption cases along with most of his family members, told the people of Bihar that the 'darkness over the state' would soon lift as he prepares to launch the 'biggest' rally ever in the state capital where he would give a call for the removal of the NDA government that, he said, had failed on all fronts.

The RJD chief also pledged to hold a rally against the NDA-led Central government saying the demonetization move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made India a bankrupt nation.

"Narendra Modi's demonetization and GST policies have left India bankrupt. These leaders who only care about Lord Ram and cows will be punished by Lord Ram because He knows these people are trying to fool even the Gods," Yadav said adding 'as a social activist', he would advise the people of India not to be fooled by this Prime Minister.

Yadav's rant drew the expected reactions from his opponents.

"Is this going to be a 'Save our Properties' rally?" Janata Dal – U spokesperson Neeraj Kumar asked.

On Yadav's comment that the country had become bankrupt due to demonetization, JD-U MP RCP Singh said that going by the properties owned by the Lalu family, it did not look like the country was going bankrupt.

Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan also took a shot at his former ally saying Lalu Prasad Yadav already held a rally before going to jail, now he will organize another one after going to jail.
