| Leave a Comment | Politics

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that he has once again resorted to deceiving people ahead of the elections and asserted that his exit is certain.

Prasad also questioned what benefit the common people of India will get from the G20 summit.

Speaking to reporters after paying obeisance at the famed Baba Baidyanath Dham temple in Jharkhand’s Deoghar district, Prasad said, “The situation in the country is not good. Inflation and unemployment are at their peak. People are falling prey to hunger. Narendra Modi has resorted to deceiving people again with elections round the corner. But his exit is certain this time.”

He took a jibe at the Prime Minister, saying the cut in prices of cooking gas was aimed at deceiving people before elections.

“It is not a matter of your (PM’s) home that you have reduced it (cooking gas price). It is the money of the people. The funds for ration or kerosene come from citizens’ money. Have you earned this?” Prasad asked.

The RJD boss also questioned the benefits of the G20 summit for the common people of India.

“What benefit did the common people get from the G20 summit? A huge sum of money was spent on organising it in the country,” he said.

Prasad also said that the BJP was badly defeated in recent assembly elections and will be wiped out in other assembly elections as well.

“We will not allow the constitution, poor, unemployed or Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar to be harmed in any way. They (the saffron party) want to wipe out the name of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar,” he alleged.

On the non-BJP bloc INDIA, Prasad said the 28 opposition parties will start working from the first coordination committee meeting in New Delhi on September 13.

He said a consensus leader of the block will also be selected in due course.
