The leader of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Tejashwi Yadav met with the head of the Bengal Minister of Mamata Banerjee Monday afternoon and offered full support to him in the upcoming assembly poll in Bengal.

“Many people from Bihar and other countries live in Bengal.

I appeal to everyone from Bihar to unite to support Mamata Ji. I will use my full strength to support it. This election is about protecting Bengal and culture, which is unique. This is The fight to save Bengal values. Our leader then Prasad Ji wants this, “Yadav said referring to his father, shortly after meeting Banerjee in Nabanna, the State Secretariat.

Former Minister of Bihar then Prasad Yadav currently presents a prison sentence in the case of animal feed fraud that the Central Investigation Bureau (CBI) starts fighting in mid-1990.

RJD will oppose several seats as the allies of the Ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC). Yadav arrived in Bengal two days ago and held a meeting with party workers.

“When the ministers must work hard to save the country and people who are all camped in Bengal. BJP spread lies. It sells national assets, such as trains and Indian steel authorities,” said Yadav.

Banerjee was present when the young RJD leader was talking to reporters.

“I congratulate Tejashwi. He is a young leader. BJP uses all kinds of tricks to stop him to win the election of Bihar. But I know he will lead Bihar immediately. How Laloo Prasad Ji suffered in improvile prison. BJP must get a message anywhere Tejashwi fought, I fought. And where I fought, he was fighting. You (BJP) can’t win this election, no matter how hard you control the media and how big you speak, “Banerjee said.

Yadav accused BJP not doing anything for the development of Bihar. “They didn’t even make Patna University a central university. They promised to produce 20,000,000 jobs but nothing happened. As long as the Covid-19 locker from Bihar was treated badly. Nothing was done to send them home from other states. People die while walking on the highway and run down by train. Their numbers are more than those who die of Covid-19, “Yadav said.

“Instead, Mamata Ji is on the streets, helping people. No matter how much we praise him, it won’t be enough,” Yadav said.

RJD was the ally of the Congress in Bihar and the two parties tried to attend Assam elections together.

Asked whether RJD’s support for TMC who opposed Congress was fighting in Bengal, it would affect the political equation of his party with the old Grand Party, said Yadav, “our alliance with Congress was in Bihar. This alliance depends on the political situation that varies the region to the region.”

The leaders of the Bengal Congress did not comment on Yadav’s statement until Monday night.

The leaders of the National Congress and Maharashtra Party (NCP) held talks with TMC leaders last month and agreed to form alliances against BJP in the Bengal Assembly poll.

Bihar’s decision party, Janata Dal (United), or JDU, the Jamajwadi Party (SP) from Uttar Pradesh; The Jharkhand verdict, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and Shiv Sena Maharashtra also decided to oppose polls both in alliances with TMC or independently.

The entry of regional parties has triggered the possibility of divisions given by Hindi and tribal speaking people.

A large number of people with roots in Bihar are permanent residents in Bengal. The state is also home to a large number of migrant workers from Bihar.

The Head of the BJP Bengal Unit Dilip Ghosh removed the threat to the party from the RJD alliance with TMC.

“Many regional parties look supported Mamata Banerjee before Lok Sabha’s polls in 2019 but we have seen how they face defeat. They will face the same fate again. Those who are not confident need crutches.
