New Delhi: Political heavyweights Mamata Banerjee (TMC), Akhilesh Yadav (SP) and rebel JD-U leader Sharad Yadav were among scores of Opposition leaders who attended the Rashtriya Janata Dal-organised 'Desh Bachao, BJP Bhagao' rally at the historic Gandhi Maidan here today. The event attracted a mammoth crowd.Sharad Yadav, who was accompanied by suspended JD-U Rajya Sabha MP Ali Anwar, was warmly embraced by RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav. As Lalu and his wife Rabri Devi greeted Mamata, their son Tejaswi Yadav touched her feet. CPI's general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy and secretary D Raja were seated on the dais. Former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren and JVM president Babulal Marandi too were present. Former Bihar Deputy CM Tejaswi Yadav, his elder brother Tej Pratap Yadav and Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad were among those seated in the front row Accusing Bihar CM Nitish Kumar of betrayal most foul, Lalu said: "Never in world's history have parties with different manifestos joined hands to form a government. The RJD had 80 seats in the 243-member Assembly, more than that held by JD-U. Yet, I blessed Nitish as Bihar CM.
"Nitish had once pledged to fight the BJP-RSS till his dying breath. He has now crossed over. By doing so, he has betrayed all Biharis, especially Bihar ki beti (ex-Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar who lost the presidential election)." Targeting the Nitish government on the Rs 1,000 crore Srijan scam, he said he had gathered the relevant papers and demanded that the CBI probe into the matter be monitored by the Supreme Court.
