Nitish Kumar unable to handle Bihar, farewell guaranteed: Tejashwi Yadav
New Delhi : Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Monday attacked Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and claimed that he was unable to govern the state. He urged people to give grand alliance a chance to serve the state. The Grand Alliance’s chief ministerial candidate promised that if voted to power, they would do what the Janata Dal(United) president couldn't in the past 15 years.
"Nitish Ji is not able to handle Bihar... We’re asking the public to give us a chance, so we can do what CM couldn’t achieve in 15 years," Yadav was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. He alleged that in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s reign, there are only 77 policemen per lakh population in the state and added that job vacancies have not been filled. The RJD, meanwhile, has promised to employ one million people if it comes to power.
The campaigning for the second phase of Bihar elections ended on Sunday. During his 12 rallies, Yadav talked about how governments failed in overcoming issues like unemployment, poverty and others.
"We are coming to power and provide jobs to one million youths. The Nitish Kumar government has failed to address joblessness in the state and also silent on the price rise and inflation. Both the central and state government led by NDA have failed to fulfil their promises," he said at rallies in Mahua and Bakhtiarpur.
Elections in Bihar are being conducted in three phases. While people across 71 constituencies voted on October 28, those from 94 constituencies will cast their ballot November 3 and the rest on November 7. Results of the polls on the 243-seat assembly will be declared on November 10.
