SP, RJD, LJP confident of defeating NDA, MayawatiApril 9th, 2009 - 4:41 pm ICT by ANI
Saifai (Uttar Pradesh), April 9 (ANI): The newly formed front of Samajwadi Party (SP), Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) kickstarted its election campaign in Saifai, the native village of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, on Thursday.
Addressing an election meeting in the village, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav asserted that there can be no government at the Centre without the three parties.
Taking a dig at the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Lalu said, “Its not in the destiny of Advani to become the Prime Minister of India. The three of us will wipe out NDA.”
Expressing confidence of winning in the upcoming elections, he said Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati will be defeated by the unity of the three parties that can be broken by none.
Lalu Yadav further praised Mulayam Singh Yadav for supporting United Progressive Alliance (UPA) at its hour of need.
Accusing Mayawati of not doing anything for the backward classes, LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan said, “Some people act as if they were friends of Dalits but they are not,” he said. Our fight is for the rights of the poor, he added.
The leaders of the new alliance are slated to address poll rallies in Bareilly, Varanasi and Gorakhpur later in the day. (ANI)
