Patna: Asserting that the ruling coalition in Bihar will complete its five-year term, RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Saturday praised the functioning of Nitish Kumar-led government and came down heavily on the BJP for saying that "cracks" had appeared in the ruling Grand Secular Alliance.

"The secular alliance will complete its full term," he asserted and scoffed at the speculation regarding fissures between his party and JD(U) over killing of two engineers at Darbhanga and the alleged downslide in law and order situation.

The Nitish Kumar ministry is sincerely working on promises made during the poll and initiating measures in every department after comprehensive review of their working, he told the state executive meeting of RJD here. On BJP's comment that "cracks" had appeared within the RJD-JDU-Congress coalition which would lead to its early fall, Prasad said, "After summary defeat in the Bihar elections BJP is demoralised and that is why it is casting evil eyes on the secular alliance government."

On LJP chief and Union minister Ramvilas Paswan assertions that secular alliance will not last long in Bihar and the state will see mid-term elections, Prasad said, "Rather there is every possibility of mid-term poll at the Centre as the Narendra Modi government is gripped with one crisis after another."

He appealed to secular forces to unite to repeat the defeat of BJP in Assam, West Bengal and other states going to the polls this year. Senior RJD leader and Prasad's close confidante Ramchandra Purbe was re-elected as president of RJD in Bihar unanimously for the third term.

He was the sole candidate for the post. Prasad's daughter Misa Bharti's name had cropped up for the post but she and her brother deputy chief minister Tejaswi Yadav had dismissed speculation in this regard.
