Patna, Oct 12: Senior BJP leader Ravishankar Prasad today described the joint manifesto of RJD-LJP combine for the coming Assembly polls in Bihar as 'nothing but a bagful of empty promises'.
Referring to the promise made by the combine in the manifesto that it would work for toning up the administation to improve law and order, the BJP chief spokesperson made a mention of Lalu Prasad's tenure as chief minister and said, "Such promise from a person who ruined Bihar and gave patronage to criminals is nothing but a mockery of democracy."
"People are not going to be influenced by such empty promises by a person whose 15-year rule has been characterised by jungle raj and anarchy," he said.
"During 15-year long RJD rule, Laluji had kept on making promises to the people which remain far from being fulfilled," Prasad said, adding, in the given situation, the RJD leader's claim that he would stage a comeback was "nothing but day dreaming."
Claiming that NDA had consolidated its position in Seemanchal belt going to polls in the first phase on October 21 and he said its rival (RJD-LJP alliance) would face a rout there. PTI
