New Delhi, Dec 19 : Launching a blistering attack on BJP and JDU after leaving NDA few days back, Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) Chief Upendra Kushwaha on Wednesday advised the Lok Janshakti Party to break alliance with the NDA, else the saffron party would destroy them.

PDS Minister Ram Vilas Paswan-headed LJP had contested on eight seats in 2014 elections.

Talking to reporters here, Mr Kushwaha said, 'The arrogance of BJP and Nitish Kumar was one of the reasons why we left NDA, others will also face the same arrogance. Lok Janshakti Party should also leave the NDA as soon as possible. Otherwise, they have (BJP) made their mind to destroy the smaller parties.'

Beginning this month, the RLSP snapped ties with the NDA over seat sharing formula. BJP had allotted two seats out of 40 to Bihar-based RLSP.

In the last General elections, the RLSP had won three seats. Then, the JDU contested alone and emerged victorious on two seats. This time, the BJP and JDU are contesting on 16-16 seats.(UNI)
