BJP should name the states where it provided 5 lakh jobs, asks Tejashwi

Leader of the Opposition Grand Alliance in the Bihar Assembly election, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, has been taunting the Prime Minister’s Bihar rally. The young leader said that if I am going through the dreams, aspirations, hopes, and expectations of the youth then what is my fault in this? Why Bihar did not get the special state status. Now the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), promising to provide 19 lakh jobs, should name one of its party-ruled states, where five lakh people have been given jobs in five years.

In a press conference at the RJD state office on Friday, Tejashwi said that the UPA government had provided assistance of 1 lakh 44 thousand crore to Bihar. Three major railway factories were found. MNREGA, rural roads were built. At that time the centroid was 90 percent. What did the center give in Bihar floods? What happened to the promise of commissioning Motihari Sugar Mill in 2014? In 2015, the PM himself listed a list of 35 scams in Bihar. He should explain why NITI Aayog called Bihar a laggard on all parameters.

Tejashwi said that 60 percent of Bihar’s population is young. There is a difference between the two generations between the people sitting in the government and the youth. He further said that in many subjects his opinion may also be different from that of his father Lalu Prasad, but Bihar’s opinion is paramount to him. In this era as well, the government wants to show black and white to the youth, while we want to take these youth in the era of 5G, 54 inch HD screen, and Avon Artificial Intelligence. Talking about factories, jobs, industries, mills, and factories, the PM should ask the Chief Minister why this could not happen in 15 years.
