RJD’s 2-day state-wide protest will end on Monday with a resolve to fight against inflation by uprooting the NDA from the governance. 

The protest by RJF got momentum when RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav made a clarion call taking to his twitter handle and saying: “I am giving a recipe to reduce inflation. Remove the NDA, Reduce the Inflation”.

Corruption, inflation, unemployment, poverty is increasing and the government is fighting with the common people. Oppose this cruel government vehemently. There has been a lot of inflation, leave the chair shameless government”.
