‘No need to worry about defeat, start working for Bihar assembly polls right now’: Lalu
The RJD chief gave this instruction to state president Purve
RANCHI: The RJD on Saturday said it was not a bit demoralized over party’s defeat in the Lok Sbha elections and would fight the next assembly elections under the leadership of Tejashwi Yadav again.
The RJD which fought the LS polls under an umbrella of six opposition parties failed to open its account in the LS elections—first time since it was formed in 1997.
“Tejashwi Yadav has all the political capabilities and the opposition alliance will fight the next assembly polls under his leadership,” RJD’s Bihar unit president Ram Chandra Purve told the media after meeting national party chief Lalu Prasad in Ranchi hospital on Saturday.
According to him, Lalu Prasad asked the party leaders to strengthen the Grand Alliance in the state saying it had all the capabilities to win the state polls. The next assembly elections in Bihar are due later next year.
“Tejashwi Yadav is a young and dynamic leader who held the maximum election rallies in the state although he lost. There is nothing to worry as victory and defeats are part of the elections,” Prasad said, according to Purve.
During the meeting, Prasad also suggested the state party leadership to take lessons from the past mistakes and strengthen the Grand Alliance at the booth-level.
“Start working in this direction right now,” Prasad told Purve.
