“If the current Chief Minister again wins this election by mistake then our state will lose. Our state will again stand on the verge of getting ruined,” Chirag Paswan said.
Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Chirag Paswan today said a victory for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in the upcoming assembly polls will be disastrous for the state. Attacking the state government over its record on development, Paswan said Mr Kumar could return to rule only by highlighting the work done under Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the past six years.
“If the current Chief Minister again wins this election by mistake then our state will lose. Our state will again stand on the verge of getting ruined,” Chirag Paswan said, adding, “There was a time when you did not want to see Modi out of jealousy…today you win applause by falsely claiming the works of the Centre as your own.”
The LJP left the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) recently. Chirag Paswan has been consistently holding Nitish Kumar responsible for his party’s exit from the alliance in the state. He has been very vocal in his criticism of the 15-year rule of Nitish Kumar.
At the launch of his party’s manifesto, Mr Paswan levelled serious allegations against the incumbent chief minister.
“I wonder how he promotes casteism. It is not appropriate to imagine the development of Bihar under the leadership of a person who promotes communalism,” Mr Paswan said.
Paswan also claimed that LJP’s manifesto is based on the vision of “Bihar first, Bihari first”. “It will resolve various problems that the people of Bihar have been facing for long,” Mr Paswan added.
Among notable promises in its manifesto, Paswan’s LJP has vowed to build a web portal where employers and job seeker can connect. It also promises to offer a youth commission and separate toilets for women in block and panchayat headquarters, besides various markets.
“All state government employees on contract will be regularised. To prevent flood and drought, all the rivers of the state will be connected by canals,” the manifesto reads.
