Fifteen years ago, some people had put Bihar in an identity crisis but choosing Prime Minister Narendra Modi has changed the nature of Indian politics, said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath speaking at a rally here on Thursday.
“Recall their ‘Jungle Raj’ when corruption was rampant… 6 years ago, choosing Prime Minister Narendra Modi changed the nature of Indian politics. Now, no poor has religion or caste. Development is for all,” he added.
Adityanath said that a few people had hampered the development of Bihar and that they were again lying to the public by promising to provide jobs. “In these 15 years, Bihar has covered a long journey of development under the leadership of CM Nitish Kumar,” he said.
He thanked the Prime Minister for the announcement of ‘Garib Kalyan Package’ for the welfare of poor people and also the people of Bihar for stepping out to vote amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bihar recorded a 53.54 per cent polling in the first phase of assembly polls on Wednesday, according to a release by the office of the Chief Electoral Officer of Bihar. The state is witnessing a keen contest between the ruling JDU-BJP alliance, grand alliance (RJD, Congress and others), the third front with RLSP leader Upendra Kushwaha as its chief ministerial candidate and Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), which is eying the role of a kingmaker in case of a hung Assembly.
