RJD chief Lalu Prasad all set for Parivartan rally today

PATNA, MAY 15, 2013;--

With today\'s Parivartan rally considered crucial to reassert the popularity of RJD chief Lalu Prasad , the party has booked 13 trains to transport people to the event here.

\"A total 13 trains have been booked from different destinations in Bihar and Jharkhand for rally,\" East Central Railway Chief Public Relation Officer Amitabh Prabhakar said.

He said over Rs.1.11 crore payment has been taken by Railways for booking the trains.

\"We have nothing to do with the rally, we booked the trains for earning revenue,\" Prabhakar said.

While ECR has been paid to provide eight trains, three have been engaged from Eastern Railways for supporters in Jharkhand, while the Northeastern Frontier Railway would provide two trains to mobilise supporters from Seemanchal (bordering districts of Kishangunj, Purnia and Katihar and Araria) to Patna.

The rally, to be held at Gandhi Maidan, would be first of its kind by RJD after 2005 when it lost power to NDA in the state.

It is being considered crucial to reassert the popularity of Lalu who has been lying low since the decimation of RJD in the general elections and 2010 assembly polls in the state.

RJD general secretary Ramkripal Yadav said the rally would decide the future course of politics in Bihar.

\"The Parivartan rally will be the manifestation of people\'s anger against Nitish Kumar government,\" he claimed.

Lalu had travelled across the state asking people to join the rally.
