Lalu attacks Modi over 'double engine' remark
Chapra : Ahead of second round of Bihar Assembly Polls, RJD President Lalu Prasad Yadav attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 'double engine' remark.
"It is not a double engine but it is a trouble engine government in Bihar," Lalu Prasad said from his official Twitter handle.
Where was your double engine when the migrants were trying to return to their homeland during lockdown, Lalu asked.
Lalu Prasad Yadav's comments were a reaction to PM Modi's speech in Chapra. Bihar has a double engine government meant for development, while the opposition has a “double Yuvraj”, PM Modi said during his political rally.
PM Modi’s remark did not go down well with Tejashwi Yadav as well. "If he has double engine government in Bihar, then why is unemployment rate in Bihar 46.6 per cent," he asked.
The young RJD leader also asked why the Niti Aayog had ranked the state last on education and health, while NCRB reports cite the highest crime rate in Bihar and why migration took place in such a large number.
"Youths of every second house in Bihar are going to other states to earn their livelihood," he said.
The second phase of voting in Bihar will be done on November 3.
