RJD fasts against withholding of caste data

Patna, July 26 (IANS) RJD chief Lalu Prasad and his supporters fasted here on Sunday to protest against the central government’s failure to make public the caste-based census.

“We are fasting to expose the Narendra Modi government’s anti-poor, anti-Dalit and anti-backward face,” Lalu Prasad told the media at the Gandhi Maidan here where the one-day protest is being observed.

Ram Chandra Purve, the state president of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), said the fast was “just a beginning” in the campaign against the Modi government.

Lalu Prasad has called a shutdown in Bihar on Monday over the issue.
