Ram Vilas Paswan Patna, Apr 11 (ANI): Political activities are on a high ahead of the general elections as leaders of various parties are exuding optimism of gaining peoples confidence.

Janata Dal- United leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday slammed Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan for taking actor Sanjay Dutt’s support to pull crowd.

“You can see that Lalu and Paswan used to consider themselves crowd pullers. But now they have to call Sanjay Dutt to conduct meetings and pull crowd. What can be worse than this?” Kumar said.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party (SP) General Secretary Amar Singh said his party’s alliance with the RJD and the LJP would pose a formidable challenge.

“If in the past Lalu, Mulayam and Paswan would not have committed certain mistakes, there would have been neither Nitish in Bihar nor Mayawati in Uttar Pradesh. We have decided to forget the past, set the present in order and lay the foundation for a better tomorrow,” Singh said.

At the same time, former Union Minister Buta Singh has decided to contests polls from the Jalore parliamentary constituency in Rajasthan after being ‘ignored’ by the Congress.

“I wanted to contest from the Ganganagar parliamentary constituency. In fact my sources in the party told me that I would be given the ticket. But at the last moment the ticket was given to someone else. So I came back to my old constituency at people’s beckoning,” Singh said. (ANI)
