Patna : RJD president Lalu Prasad on December 22 urged PM Narendra Modi to personally respond to the charges of
AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi made at Mehsana in Gujarat. ” Narendra Modi should himself respond to Rahul Gandhi’s allegations not through his spokesmen,”Lalu said.
Lalu claimed Narendra Modi till now had claimed not even his enemies accused him of  graft, but now there is an open charge made against him in his home state. ” Rahul had alleged Narendra Modi had himself accepted
grafts from two industrial houses when he was CM of Gujarat. There is direct charge against Narendra Modi and it is his duty to explain to the people himself not through his spokesmen,” Lalu said.
RJD president  said the much publicised campaign against black money launched on November 8, 2016, has flopped. “The countrymen had supported prime minister’s campaign even after sufferings at the bank counters and
ATMs. Now, hardly a week is left for his promised 50 days for recovery. PM had claimed demonetisation would help unearthing of black money hidden by terrorists and Naxalites. But, now money is being recovered from BJP leaders,” Lalu said.
The RJD has planned statewide dharna against demonetisation on December 28. Lalu has invited JD(U) president and Bihar CM Nitish Kumar also to join dharna at Patna where Lalu would also join the dharna. Leaders of all opposition parties have been invited to join rally against demonetisation to be held here in January.
Meanwhile, the JD(U), which supported PM on demonetisation will also review its stand after December 30, Nitish Kumar said. The CM said he would convene a meeting of senior party leaders and seek their opinion on demonetisation and its impact on economy.
State JD(U) chief Bashistha Narain Singh was, however, categorical that in view of the sufferings of the farmers and migrant workers due to demonetisation, the  party would revise its stand and oppose demonetisation. Reverse migration of labourers from Bihar is taking place as they have been rendered unemployed due to lockouts in
industrial units and cash crunch among farmers in Punjab and Haryana.
