Bihar BJP chief Nityanand Rai today claimed that Lalu Prasad's RJD would not get a single Lok Sabha seat in 2019 general elections.
"The elections in 2019 (Lok Sabha) will be such that Lalu Prasad and his party will not be able to win a single seat in the Lok Sabha elections," Rai said while briefing reporters here at the end of conclusion of two-day state level executive committee meeting here.
He said that the person who indulged in corruption, falsehood, back-stabbed the poor and amassed disproportionate assets both as union minister and chief minister was now tweeting "Satyamev Jayate".
"Yes, truth will prevail but Lalu Prasad will bite the dust in time to come," he said and added that the disappointed opposition was trying to create disturbance and tension on the occasion of Dussehra and Muharram in the state.
"They will not be successful in their efforts as people are aware of the ploy and they want peace and development in the society for which BJP is striving hard," he said and vowed to end the social ills of "casteism" from the society.
Rai, who is also a Lok Sabha member from Ujiarpur, alleged that the RJD and Congress had stalled the Rajya Sabha so that the passage of the Constitution Amendment Bill to grant Constitutional status to the National Commission for Socially and Educationally Backward Classes could be blocked.
"It was Narendra Modi government which got the Amendment Bill passed in the Lok Sabha, but it could not be passed in the Rajya Sabha due to the opposition of Congress and RJD... It could not be passed because of those who indulge in politics of pseudo social justice," Rai said while re-affirming the prime minister's commitment to get the Bill passed to protect the interest of the poor and downtrodden.
Rai said that the executive committee also passed political resolution that focused on the prime minister's New India vision and Direct Benefit Transfer scheme among others.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi said that GST was the biggest indirect tax reform post Independence.
There would be some teething problems in implementation of any major scheme, Modi said adding that the most important thing was that the union government was sensitive and pro-active in resolving the problems of traders and exporters.
