RJD announces to boycott Modi’s dinner over death of children in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur
The mystery disease has killed 118 children in Muzaffarpur alone so far
PATNA: The main opposition party in Bihar headed by jailed politician Lalu Prasad, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has announced to boycott the dinner party hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi tonight, citing continuing deaths of children from suspected encephalitis.
RJD’s Rajya Sabha member Misa Bharti on Thursday said she would not be joining the dinner hosted for newly-elected parliamentarians because of deaths of children in her home state. Bharti is the eldest daughter of RJD chief Prasad.
“Won’t be attending the dinner hosted by the Prime Minister. The money spent on this party can be used for buying medicines and live equipments for the children afflicted with deadly disease,” Bharti told a news agency.
As per media reports, the PM has hosted the dinner at Ashoka Hotel in Delhi tonight.
The mystery disease which has been locally identified as “Acute Encephalitis Syndrome” (AES) has killed 118 children in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar so far, filling the areas with the heart-rending cries of wailing mothers.
The RJD in the meanwhile has indirectly blamed the masses for giving BJP another chance in office while ignoring the issues concerning the common men.
तेजस्वी जी चुनाव भर कहते रहे मुद्दों पर बात करो मुद्दों पर लेकिन वो 70 साल पहले के गड़े मुर्दे उखाड़ते रहे। हम मुद्दों पर बोलते रहे वो मुर्दों पर..अब बिहार में चारों तरफ़ मुर्दे ही मुर्दे है।
मुद्दों को तरजीह ना देने पर शासक निरंकुश हो जाता है शायद जनता अब यह समझ रही है। https://t.co/U0w0znDv9Q

“All through the election campaign, Tejashwi Yadav continued asking the ruling party leaders to speak over real muddas (the issues) but they continued digging out murdas (old graves/dead bodies)…Now, there are murdas (dead bodies) all over Bihar,” “ tweeted the RJD on Thursday.
It said the masses must be repenting now for voting for the BJP in the just-held Lok Sabha elections.
