Patna (Bihar) [India], October 15 (ANI): Exuding confidence in replacing the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Bihar Minister Tej Pratap Yadav on Saturday predicted that the flag of Mahagathbandhan will fly at the Centre.
The RJD leader said that he had previously predicted about Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar breaking ties with the BJP to join hands with RJD, which has now proven to be true.
"...Public has rejected BJP government in Bihar. I can predict the future too. Last time, I had predicted about Chachaji (Nitish Kumar), today he is with us. Today, I predict that the flag of Mahagathbandhan will fly at the Centre," said Yadav.
He further said that his party and government believe in work adding that what the BJP is doing or not doing, it is doing in its own home because it is not visible in public.
Back in April when Kumar's JDU was in alliance with the BJP in the state, Yadav had said he held secret talks with Kumar and that JDU-RJD will form the next government in Bihar.
"Earlier I had put up 'No Entry' board (for Bihar CM Nitish Kumar), and now I have put up Entry 'Nitish Chacha Ji' board, so he came... Since he came, govt will be formed...will form a government, it is a secret. I had a word with Nitish Ji secretly," Yadav had said.
Meanwhile, reacting to JDU chief Lalan Singh's remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tej Pratap Yadav said that such statements should be avoided.

Earlier, JDU president Rajiv Ranjan alias Lalan Singh accused PM Modi of being duplicitous about his caste alleging PM Modi added his caste to the OBC list during his tenure as the Gujarat chief minister.
Addressing JD(U) party members here, Singh on Friday said, "In 2014, Narendra Modi roamed the country saying he was from the Extremely Backward Class (EBC). There is no EBC in Gujarat, only OBC. When Modi became Gujarat Chief Minister he added his caste to OBC. He is a duplicate, not an original."
Stating that BJP is a "messy place", Singh said that those who left BJP and joined JD(U) did a good job.
The JD(U) leader also attacked the central government over the issue of unemployment and inflation.
"Inflation is never discussed, but Cheetah is discussed. Will the cheetah go hungry? Employment has been destroyed. The central government has no control over inflation. PM Modi never sold tea, does he even know how to make tea," Singh added.
Notably, the Income Tax (IT) department on Friday conducted raids at multiple locations in Patna, including the Shivpuri, Patel Nagar, and Boring Road premises of builder Gabbu Singh.
Builder Gabbu Singh is a close aide of the JD(U) chief Lalan Singh. (ANI)
