Senior RJD leader Raghuvansh Prasad Singh sent ripples through Bihar politics on Sunday by claiming that LJP chief and Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan was in touch with RJD leaders and that he would join the RJD-led Opposition alliance before the Lok Sabha polls. Paswan, however, dubbed the claims as rubbish.
Paswan has a record of being a cabinet minister in all the governments formed in last 20 years. Ram Vilas Paswan has an expertise in predicting the political wind and now the Indian meteorological department wants to use this expertise in predicting the direction and timings of the wind. Ram Vilas Paswan has been sent an official invite by the IMD to come to their office and help them predict the correct timings of the rain arrival from the south west.
Whether or not Paswan will stay in the NDA is a far off question but the question in front of the Indian media currently is whether or not rains will arrive on time to give some relief to the farmers who are in a state of bother. After hearing about IMD’s invite even the farmers are excited as they think that after many decades they can finally hope for a better prediction. Such is their confidence in Ram Vilas Paswan. Our reporters are trying to reach Ram Vilas Paswan for his comments about the political situation in Karnataka but he has been out of reach.
