GAYA (Bihar), Aug 9 : Tearing into the ruling Nitish Kumar-Lalu Prasad alliance, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the people of Bihar to use the upcoming assembly polls as an opportunity to "free themselves from the jungle raj" by electing a BJP-led government to and develop and modernise the state.
"You have suffered their arrogance, deceit and exploitation for the last 25 years. Do you want such a rule to continue for another five years," the Prime Minister asked at a mass rally here.
"These elections are an opportunity for you to free yourselves from the jungle raj... You have so far seen jungle raj ... If you allow jungle raj part two, it will only spell further disaster for the state," Modi said.
Taking a jibe at RJD supremo Lalu Prasad over his conviction in the fodder scam, he said "those who go to jail, come out learning bad things." ?THE HINDU
