RJD President Lalu Prasad today predicted an eradication for the formidable BJP, with its trademark swagger that remains diminished despite old age, failing health and legal troubles.
“Don’t worry, the BJP will be wiped out (safaya ho jaega),” was the short reply of the seven-year-old as journalists drew his attention to the fulminations of Union Home Secretary Amit Shah at a meeting in Purnea on Friday.
Lalu Yadav, who has been convicted in feed scam cases and has kept numerous ailments away from active politics, spoke here at the airport before boarding a flight to Delhi.
In the national capital, he is expected to be joined on Sunday by arch-rival Nitish Kumar, the prime minister of Bihar, to meet Congress Speaker Sonia Gandhi for talks on opposition unity.
Nitish Kumar will also attend a meeting in Haryana along with his deputy and Prasad’s son Tejashwi Yadav. The meeting, hosted by former Haryana CM Om Prakash Chautala, is expected to be attended by a large number of opposition leaders.
