Chapra: Indian BJP leader L K Advani commenced his 38-day yatra from Sitab Diara yesterday. As the yatra began, BJP leaders invoked the name of Loknayak Jai Prakash to garner support for Advani’s journey.
Sushma Swaraj, in her speech, hit out at the UPA government. She said that the government had become unpopular because of unchecked inflation and corruption.
Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj, also targetted Lalu Prasad Yadav. She said people used to tease followers of JP saying one of his disciples had caused so much of damage to the state.
“However, now two other disciples of JP – Nitish Kumar and Sushil Modi – are taking the state on the path of progress,” she added.
BJP’s Arun Jaitley said he was a supporter of Jai Prakash’s movement.
He too attacked the UPA government saying that it was yet to be decided as to where the buck would finally stop in the 2G scam.
