Bihar Elections: Biharis Hate Nitish Kumar, Claims Tejashwi Yadav
During an interview, the RJD leader spoke about his vision of a new Bihar with an upgraded education and employment system, while also sharing why Biharis hate CM Nitish Kumar now
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav spoke to a channel exclusively on his vision for the future of Bihar and his dissent against the Nitish Kumar government. Addressing the Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance in the state as a double-engine government, Yadav said that the people of the region are not angry with the chief minister, but in fact hate him.
He called out the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for its inability to eradicate poverty, unemployment and hunger from Bihar. Recounting the migrant exodus during the initial stages of the Coronavirus lockdown, Tejashwi accused the administration of disappointing all Biharis. Whether it was the flood situation or COVID19, he claimed that no one from the central government visited the affected areas.
On being asked if he is taking the route of pressing on economic justice rather than social justice, a cause that was always propagated by former CM and his father Lalu Prasad Yadav, the former deputy CM said that his vision is in sync with the current times. Putting aside the age-old caste politics, the Mahagathbandhan’s CM candidate emphasized on the need to improve the education, health, medical and engineering system in Bihar.
Yadav also questioned Nitish Kumar for not fulfilling his promise of Bihar getting a special status. He further added that despite the state being one of the youngest demographically, it still remains amongst the poorest and most backward.
He concluded by saying that his team is looking at fighting real battles to change the face of the ill-reputed state by bringing in a new approach for its population.
