JD-U set to break up: Lalu Prasad

Patna, June 15 (IANS) RJD chief Lalu Prasad Saturday said that Bihar's ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) was on the verge of breaking up as over 50 of its legislators were set to join the BJP.

And for a change, Lalu Prasad launched a scathing attack against JD-U, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and JD-U president Sharad Yadav instead of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), his favourite target.

"The JD-U will break and more than 50 of its legislators will join the BJP soon," he told the media here.

Lalu Prasad ruled out a split in his own Rashtriya Janata Dal.

The RJD leader said Nitish Kumar was trying to end the alliance with the BJP only to woo Muslim voters.

He questioned Nitish Kumar's silence during the 2002 riots in Gujarat when the latter was a cabinet minister in the NDA government.
