The Rashtriya Janata Dal Party today ruled out the possibility of BJP's Narendra Modi becoming the next prime Minister of the country.

In a statement here, the party's State Unit Senior Vice-President A G Ramachandran pointed out that in India only a few parties like RJD and Congress could talk about secularism.

Mr Ramachandran, who is also member of the RJD's national executive claimed that in Bihar, the RJD and the Congress would win all the Lok Sabha seats. Fodder scandal against RJD's National President Lalu Prasad yadhav was false. Because of this, the backward class and minorities of Bihar fully backed Mr Yadhav in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Welcoming DMK President M Karunanidhi's reported assurance that the DMK will support secular forces to form the new Government at the Centre after the Lok Sabha elections he said a senior politician like Mr Karunanidhi knows pretty well that Congress could alone provide a secular Government to the country. Moreover, the DMK was part of the Congress-led UPA Government for nine years, he added.

He also welcomed the remark of Mr Jawaharullah (MLA) and leader of the Manitha Neya Makkal Katchi, a constituent of the DMK led Democratic Progressive Allaince in Tamil Nadu, that if the BJP comes to power, it would endanger the ideology of secularism.
