Former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi on Sunday said the alliance of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), the Janata Dal (United) and the Congress is for selfish gains.
“The alliance is not only of the Congress, but also of the RJD, SP and the JD (U). All of them are there for selfish gains, that is why the alliance holds no value,” Manjhi told ANI.
“A few people of the Samajwadi Party have gone there, otherwise, most of them have kept themselves away from it. Sonia has also gone there. Sonia and Congress do not have any importance in Bihar. Lalu has his influence in Bihar,” he added.
Manjhi said, “None of the Dalits came there. Nitish has become a big flop. The rally has not shaped up to be a big one.”
The Swabhiman Rally began here on Sunday with RJD chief Lalu Yadav, JD (U) national president Sharad Yadav, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and Shivpal Singh Yadav, brother of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav attending it.
The rally will also be attended by the Congress President Sonia Gandhi. She has, however, not reached Gandhi Maidan, where the rally is being held, as yet.
In the wake of the upcoming elections, a grand alliance of the JD (U), RJD and Congress have organized the ‘Swabhiman Rally’ at Patna’s Gandhi Maidan.
