Chidambaram Quotes Joe Biden, Urges People Of Bihar To Choose “Truth Over Lies”

Mr Chidamabaram also referred to the landslide victory of Jacinda Ardern’s centre-left labour party in general elections of New Zealand. He said the results of elections gave hope that “decency and progressive values” can win elections.

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Sunday referred to the US Presidential democratic nominee Joe Biden’s remarks and urged the people of Bihar – who will vote in Assembly elections starting October 28 – to choose “hope over fear, unity over division… and truth over lies”.

Mr Chidambaram, in a series of three tweets posted this morning, quoted Mr Biden as he challenges Donald Trump for the US presidency, and appealed to people across India to take a similar vow.

“Mr Joe Biden, Democratic candidate in the US elections, said yesterday, ‘We choose hope over fear, unity over division, science over fiction and yes, truth over lies’,” the former finance minister P Chidambaram said, adding, “That’s a good vow that the people of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and elsewhere should take when they go to the polling booths this month.”

Mr Chidamabaram also referred to the landslide victory of Jacinda Ardern’s centre-left labour party in general elections of New Zealand. He said the results of elections gave hope that “decency and progressive values” can win elections.

Other than Bihar assembly polls,  by polls for a Lok Sabha seat and 56 Assembly seats across 12 states – including 28 in Madhya Pradesh – are slated for the first week of November.

Chidambaram’s Congress party is fighting in a grand alliance with RJD and left parties and released its manifesto yesterday. The Mahagathbandhan has promised 10 lakh permanent government jobs and the immediate repeal of the central government’s controversial farm laws.

The Congress party will be contesting 70 seats in the upcoming Bihar polls, whereas RJD will fight 144 seats. Left parties will fight on 29 seats.

Bihar assembly polls will be conducted in three phases and results will be declared on November 10.
