“BJP has applied for the three grounds (two in Muzaffarpur Institute of Technology and the one at police line next to it) in advance and Muzaffarpur district administration at that time confirmed there is no other application of any programme at those venues on that day,” senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi told reporters.
"Now Lalu Prasad's party merely to create controversy is announcing to hold a parallel rally and its district president applying for permission to hold RJD rally at police line ground also on March 3,” he said.
"As per rules, permission should be given to who applied first...We are waiting whether Nitish Kumar administration goes by rules or acts in a partisan manner in favour of RJD," he added, while speaking on the sidelines of ‘Janata Darbar’ held by him at his official residence.
The former deputy chief minister said the BJP is not worried even if the district administration violating rules grants permission to RJD for a parallel rally as it will expose that Lalu is a dwarf in front of Narendra Modi.

“Lalu Prasad will come to know his value," Sushil Modi said.
“Rather my suggestion will be even Nitish Kumar shall hold a simultaneous rally of the JD(U) in one of the three grounds on the same day which will prove who among the three is more popular and can draw big crowd," he added.

On the RJD supremo’s claim that it was he who had stopped the rath of BJP veteran L K Advani in 1990 to ‘limit’ the BJP in Bihar and likewise he would checkmate Narendra Modi this time, Sushil Modi in a lighter vein said ‘at that time Lalu was young but now he has grown old and has no strength to pose any challenge’.
"Lalu Prasad or Nitish Kumar has no strength to stop the ‘aswamedh’ horse of Narendra Modi," he said.
