Patna, Jan 27 (Calcutta Tube) Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad led hundreds of party workers and leaders on a march here Wednesday, a day ahead of party’s call for a state-wide shutdown in Bihar to protest rising prices of essential items.
Lalu Prasad appealed to people to support the party’s dawn to dusk shutdown Thursday.
In his own style, he told people on a portable public address system: ‘Listen, listen, there will be a shutdown in Bihar and I request all of you to support us to protest rising prices.
‘I am confident that the shutdown will break all previous records with massive people support it against rising prices of essential food items,’ Lalu Prasad said.
The RJD chief also attacked Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his failure to check rising prices.
‘Both the Congress-led UPA (United Progressive Alliance) and the Nitish Kumar-led government in the state are blaming each other for price rise,’ he said.
