Patna: RJD leader Rabri Devi today
said Chief Minister Nitish Kumar does not have the strength to stop
Narendra Modi from coming to Bihar, the way her husband Lalu Prasad Yadav
had stopped L K Advani during his rath yatra in 1990.

"Lalu Prasad had the guts to stop the rath of L K Advani but Nitish Kumar
does not have the strength to stop Narendra Modi," she was quoted as
saying by party spokesman Randhir Yadav.

Advani was arrested on October 23, 1990 at Samastipur in Bihar by the then
government of Lalu Prasad when the BJP patriarch was on his way to Ayodhya
from Somnath via central India to garner support for the Ayodhya temple.

Hitting out at BJP too, Rabri Devi, who has been chosen by RJD leaders to
'guide' the party in the absence of her jailed husband Lalu Prasad, said
notwithstanding the hue and cry raised by the party leaders, Narendra Modi
would have "no impact" in Bihar.

The former chief minister also criticised Nitish Kumar for the acquittal
of all accused in Lakshamanpur-Bathe massacre in which 58 dalits were

"Nitish Kumar should tell the people that if all the accused acquitted by
Patna High Court were innocent then who killed the innocent the dalits?"
she said.

She also attacked the ruling JD(U) for terming the June mid-day meal
tragedy in Chapra an RJD "conspiracy".

Citing the chargesheet filed by police in the incident against the school
principal and her husband, she asked the JD(U) as to on what basis it had
accused the RJD in the incident.
