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.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
