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”. 

The 2-day protest was further backed up when Lalu wrote in his tweet on July 17: 'There will be a protest of RJD on 18-19 July against 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”.

On Saturday, the RJD’s ally in the Mahagatvandhan-the Congress Party had protested against the inflation and hike in fuel prices by organizing a cycle rally across the state capital.
