PATNA: Not only the country, but foreigners also wonder how Bihar CM Nitish Kumar will give a crime-free state to people after joining hands with the RJD which is alleged to have led a lawless state till the Lalu-Rabri regime was voted out of power and Kumar-led NDA formed the government in the state in 2005. A delegation of European Union, which visited the JD (U) office for an interactive session on Thursday evening, sought an answer on the issue from state JD (U) president Basishtha Narayan Singh. The seven- member delegation is visiting Bihar to study political alignments and socio-economic development. Anne Marchal, First Counsellor and head of political affairs of the delegation of the European Union to India, started the session asking how the CM would provide a state where rule of law would prevail after joining hands with a party which even the JD (U) says is "known for leading a lawless Bihar". "You said that there was lawlessness ten years back and now you have joined hands with the same party," Marchal said. Answering the query, Singh said the man (read Nitish Kumar) who is leading the current alliance is a person of high integrity and stands for good governance. "The alliance will not have any adverse impact on law and order," said Singh. The JD (U) state chief further defended the alliance, calling RJD president Lalu Prasad a person who has always stood for secular and socialist values. "We are against the BJP's divisive policy and want to unite the people against this party as it is out to divide people on religious lines. Lalu is a better choice as he always talks of unity and social equality," Singh added. The delegation also wanted to know from the JD (U) functionaries about the caste equation and how they expected to benefit from it during the coming assembly election. "The BJP did try to poach on the JD (U)'s vote bank by aligning with some parties having influence over OBC, EBC and marginalized communities but the people of Bihar have realized that the saffron party's leadership makes only false promises. Our vote bank will remain intact," Singh said. The delegates also gathered information on representation of women in Nitish's cabinet, seat sharing with RJD and Congress and why JD (U) snapped ties with BJP after long association. "We snapped ties with BJP because it had started working on divisive agenda. As for seat sharing with RJD and Congress, it will be done amicably," said the JD (U) president. Why are moron Europeans interfering in our internal affairs. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...U-on-tie-up-with-RJD/articleshow/48382679.cms @pmaitra @roma @OneGrimPilgrim @rock127 @Mad Indian @sakal Gahrelu Ustad @Rashna @blueblood I have previouly stated that so called "seculars" are supported by western marxists.
