New Delhi [India] July 31 (ANI): The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Monday supported senior Janata Dal (United) (JD(U)) leader Sharad Yadav's remark on the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) "failure to bring back black money," and said that he was sure he would perform a crucial role in raising issues that concern the government. "Sharad Yadav has a historical role to perform. I think he knows this very well and he will perform a very important role in raising these issues at a greater speed. He will make it sure that he unites everybody on this issue," RJD spokesperson Manoj Jha told ANI. He further said that Yadav knows that important issues relating to the people on the margins, relating to farmers, relating to employment and black money are simply being set aside. "Nobody is willing to talk about it. I feel Sharad ji, knowing him and his politics, should be treated differently from Nitish Kumar and JD(U), especially after seeing the way they have robbed off a progressive mandate," Jha asserted. Earlier on Sunday, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav hit out on the BJP for failing to keep the promise of bringing back black money stashed abroad. "Neither black money stashed abroad returned, one of the main slogans of the ruling party, nor anyone caught out of those named in Panama papers," Yadav took to twitter. Yadav's remark comes days after Bihar Chief Minister and another JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar quit the grand alliance with the RJD and the Congress and aligned with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and formed the government in the state.
