Ahead of Lok Sabha elections 2019, Lalu Prasad-led Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Thursday released its party's song and coined a slogan in Bhojpuri language called "Kare ke Ba, Lade ke Ba, Jeete ke Ba" (we have to do, we have to fight, we have to win). The slogan seems to imitate the famous IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders Anthem: "korbo, lorbo, jitbo re".
Sharing the slogan, RJD official Twitter said that "In this battle of justice for the sake of democracy, we have to do-we have to fight- we have to win. We will have to stand together against all injustice and atrocities as we have to do- we have to fight- we have to win".
Take a look:
However, it seems that all is not well in RJD after former Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav launch a new political front called ‘Lalu-Rabri Morcha’. He, however, said the Lalu-Rabri Morcha will be part of the RJD and he will form a new party.
While addressing the press conference, he said:
"We demanded tickets for two seats. Seohar was one. We know BJP, RSS will strategically take advantage of the situation. Saran has been a turf of Lalu ji. I want to request Rabri Devi Ji to contest from Saran. If she will not contest then I will fight independently from Saran seat".
Earlier, he met his supports outside his residence on Saturday. While addressing the media, Tej Pratap Yadav informed that he has requested Tejashwi Yadav to provide a ticket to Chandraprakash from Jahanabad and Angesh Singh from Sheohar.
"People from all across Bihar have gathered here. Even from Sheohar. Surrendra Ji has lost 3 times. Now, the one who talks about citizen's interest will get voted. I am here to listen to their grief. Yesterday I met Tejashwi ji after his press briefing. I proposed the same to him. He said we will see, we will do something but he was indecisive. He ultimately announced the name of Surrendra Singh. Now, Angesh Singh will fight independently and I am with him".
One of the supports of Tej Pratap even called Tejashwi arrogant when the media was interacting with the crowd. With Tej Pratap standing next to him, the supporter said:
"Tejaswi is arrogant. He never meets us. We keep waiting. We consider Tej Pratap as our leader".
