‘Inka bas chale toh desh ko Bihar hi bana de’: Piyush Goyal, faces backlash

New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Manoj Jha on Wednesday demanded an apology from Leader of the House and Union Minister Piyush Goyal over his controversial remarks for Bihar.

“Is the statement made by Mr. Piyush Goyal also representative of the contemptuous and condescending attitude of the Government of India toward Bihar? Because it is deeply problematic if the Government singles out one state and terms it a failure,” said the RJD leader in a letter.

Hs further stated that the people of Bihar are often considered as “second-class citizens. “Bihar has been long ignored by governments at the centre and Biharis have always been treated as second- class citizens. To overcome the long-lived prejudices against our state, Bihar needs national concern and sympathy and not sheer insensitivity towards our situation,” read the letter.

Mentioning the “tone” of the union minister’s statement, the RJD leader wrote, “Piyush Goyal should ponder and reflect on whether the sneering tone with which he speaks about Bihar is appropriate.”

Manoj Jha has sought a necessary action against the union minister. He said, “Piyush Goyal’s statement on Bihar smacked of elitism and was completely uncalled for. Therefore, I demand that Mr. Piyush Goyal should immediately make an apology to all the people of Bihar.”
