Lalu Prasad Yadav believes PM Modi’s government may fall soon, prompting early elections; Tejashwi Yadav criticizes JD(U) for allying with BJP.

Key Points 

• Lalu Yadav claims Modi government is very weak

• Urges party workers to be ready for elections

• Remarks made on RJD foundation day

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has appealed to his party workers to be ready for mid-term Lok Sabha elections. He predicted that the PM Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government could fall by August. Speaking at an event on his party’s foundation day on Friday, the former Union minister said, “I appeal to all party workers to be ready, as elections can happen anytime. Modi’s government in Delhi is very weak and it can fall by August.”

In the 2024 Lok Sabha election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) secured 240 seats but fell short of the majority mark of 272. The BJP formed the government with the support of its ally parties like JD(U) and TDP, paving the way for PM Modi’s third consecutive term. Since Modi 3.0 came into power, several Opposition leaders have claimed that the government won’t last long. They claim it would fall in a few months. Lalu’s latest remarks have given a fresh push to such claims.

Bihar’s ruling JD(U) is in alliance with the BJP, both at the Centre and in the state. RJD leader and Lalu’s son, Tejashwi Yadav criticized JD(U) saying, the party compromised its ideology by allying with the BJP to stay in power. He boasted about RJD’s performance in the recently held Lok Sabha Election 2024. He stated that the party’s vote share had increased while that of NDA had decreased.

“…Those from Janata Dal (U) compromised with their ideology due to their greed for power and allied with BJP. Rashtriya Janata Dal is the only party which has neither compromised nor kneeled before BJP. Being in power is not the biggest thing. Our fight is for those who are weak & deprived… In Lok Sabha elections, our vote share increased by 9%, while NDA’s vote share was reduced by 6%. Today, RJD has won 4 seats. We could have won more. Even then, our alliance has won 9 seats in this Lok Sabha polls…,” said Tejashwi.

The comments from both Lalu and Tejashwi Yadav come at a time when the political climate remains unpredictable, with various parties positioning themselves for potential shifts in power.
