2019 election to save Constitution, institutions: Tejashwi Yadav

Patna, Dec 28 (IBNS): RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has said the 2019 general elections was the one to save the Constitution and institutions such as the CBI and the RBI.

Saying the discussions in the grand alliance centre not around who would be Prime Minister but on farmers committing suicide, women's safety and unemployment, Lalu Prasad Yadav's son said: "It (2019) isn't an election to make someone the Prime Minister. This is the election to save our constitution and institutions like the CBI, RBI."

Speaking to NDTV, he said: "The situation in our country right now is almost like an unannounced emergency. No one can say anything against the Prime Minister, Amit Shah. If you do, they send agencies after you and put you behind bars. Those who speak the truth are anti-nationalists and liars are promoted in BJP."

Talking about NDA partners leaving, he said: "It's because of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah's arrogance... they have not been respecting their allies."

"The BJP had won 22 seats in 2014 and it is now contesting only 17 seats. JD(U) had won only two but is getting 17. Such an arrangement shows how confident the NDA is," Tejashwi said sarcastically. "But I am really glad that Ram Vilas Paswan ji reserved a seat in Rajya Sabha because he knows that NDA is going to lose very badly in Bihar."

Referring to how Lalu and Nitish had come together in Bihar that won the last Assembly elections defeating the BJP, the RJD leader said the concept of grand alliance was born in Bihar. "No one thought Nitish ji and Lalu ji will come together and fight elections, but you have seen the results. It worked. Even when RJD was the largest party, Nitish chacha was made the chief minister," he said.
