Patna: On Wednesday, RJD chief Lalu Prasad said that defeating the BJP-led NDA in Bihar assembly polls is the main target of the grand alliance of RJD, JD-U and the Congress.

“Our main target is to defeat the BJP-led NDA in polls in Bihar because this is not only a Bihar election but of India’s as all eyes are on it,” Lalu told at a press conference here after the Election Commission announced the dates of the five-phase poll.

Lalu believes that the coming polls will be an acid test for the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “I want to appeal to people and caution them to be alert of a likely distribution of fake notes by the BJP. They will bring fake notes from Nepal. If anyone is found with fake notes, it will put them in trouble,” he said.

He added, “The BJP is a mukhauta (mask). The real face is RSS, which is controlling and running the central government.”

When asked about Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party, which walked away from the grand alliance, Lalu said, “Mulayam Singh Yadav is not only a senior leader but also my samdhi (in-law). We will try to convince him, wait for some time…”

Beginning from October 12 and ending on November 5, the assembly polls in Bihar will be held in five phases. The vote count will take place on November 8.

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

He also accused Kejriwal of not fulfilling his promise of providing safety equipment to sewer workers and mechanical sweeping.

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
