Patna: As the Bihar assembly elections draw closer, the various political parties in the fray have intensified their attacks on each other.
Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav, who is the chief ministerial candidate fielded bt the Mahagatbadhan (Grand Alliance) which also comprises Congress and several other regional parties, yet again slammed the current chief minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar.
The RJD leader questioned the CM's achievements during his fifteen years in office.
"What had he (Nitish Kumar) done in Bihar for fifteen years if the government doesn't have money?" Tejashwi asked.
This question was raised when, on his (Yadav's) statement, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar retaliated and asked that from where would he bring the money to provide 10 lakh jobs?
"These days many people are saying they will give this many jobs. But from where will they bring the money for the purpose? Will, they bring it from the jail or will they do it through fake notes," Nitish Kumar had said.
In his statement against Tejashwi, Nitish Kumar also took an indirect dig at former CM Lalu Prasad Yadav who has been in jail.
"Don't get misled by this promise of jobs. We have worked hard to bring the state on the path of development. If you give us another opportunity we will work more. Our government gave more than six lakh jobs in the last five years and the process is on for recruitment on 60-70 thousand more jobs, "Nitish Kumar added.
Tejashwi Yadav has promised to generate and provide 10 lakhs government jobs to the people of the state in the first sitting of the cabinet if the Mahagatbadhan is chosen victorious in the election.
Replying to Nitish Kumar's statement, Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav asked the CM where would the money will come from.
Tejashwi alleged that the Bihar government has spent only 60% of its budget. He also questioned how could Nitish Kumar ask for votes when he had betrayed the people of the state during the flood and coronavirus pandemic.
