Taking potshots at the internal strife in the BJP, RJD President Lalu Prasad today said, "frightened" by its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, there is a stampede-like situation among them to leave the party.

"Modi has frightened senior leaders of his party so much that there is stampede like situation among them to leave the party to save their respect...he is going to destroy his own party," Prasad told reporters.

Prasad was referring to the dissatisfaction of senior BJP leaders Lal Krishna Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Jaswant Singh, Lal Muni Chaubey and Chandra Mohan Rai over distribution of tickets in the party.

Singh and Chaubey have already filed nominations to contest as independent candidates from Barmer (Rajasthan) and Buxar (Bihar) Lok Sabha constituencies, respectively.

"These communal forces are fighting among themselves. They will get destroyed. It is complete wave for the UPA in Bihar and elsewhere," said Prasad.

Boasting about his own party, the RJD chief said, "the houses of all other political parties are on fire, but see my party where everybody is quietly working for the public." 

Prasad is campaigning in Khagaria, Bhagalpur and Banka districts today to seek votes for RJD candidates.
