Addressing a rally organised by state unit of JD (U) at Joshi Nagar area of Vishwas Nagar constituency, Yadav alleged that the government only "cheated" the voters and has "miserably failed" to fulfil the promises that it made during Lok Sabha campaign.

"It has completely forgotten its slogan 'sabka sath sabka vikas' and now following the path of divisive politics and creating tension among the people of the country," Yadav said.
Splinter groups of the old Janata Parivar are holding a rally in the national capital on December 22 in which leaders from JD(U), RJD, Samajwadi Party, JDS and others will take part, a precursor to these groups joining together under one umbrella.

Attacking it over the recent controversial remarks of Union Minister Sadhi Niranjan Jyoti, Yadav said, "I want to ask the government when 70 per cent of the voters who have not voted to them are being termed as haramjada, then how can there be a development in the country?"
Alleging that the government machinery is busy finding people who are doing 'puja' in temples and who are performing azan in masjids, Yadav claimed that this disappointing job is being done by the representatives of the government.

While noting that seven months are not enough to judge the performance of any government, Yadav said that some elements in the ruling dispensation are trying to "impose their sinister motives" with their pitch on religious conversion, which should have been avoided.
"The Prime Minister does not have control over his Mps and this is the reason why all the opposition have come together like never before and demanding a clarification from him. This is up to the Prime Minister to break the logjam in Parliament," he added.

Yadav also took potshots at the Prime Minister's remarks against drug abuse at a radio programme and asked, "Why the government instead does not curb liquor shops across the country, which have become a den for social evils. Most of the women-related crime take place due to alcoholism."
