“Double Engine Federal Government”: Tejashwi Yadav’s Taunt At Nitish Kumar
It has been 15 years yet Bihar has not got special status, states Tejashwi Yadav.
Tejashwi Yadav– the previous deputy of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar– has targeted his previous boss on his starkest failure over 3 terms: His failure to get special state status for Bihar, even when he is the ally of the BJP, which manages the Centre.
” People are extremely upset. It has been 15 years yet Bihar has not got unique status. They have actually not been able to eliminate poverty, unemployment. People are extremely upset with this double engine government,” the 30- year-old told NDTV today in the middle of the campaign trail.
He has actually been consistently raising the problem, buffooning the Chief Minister over it. “United States President Donald Trump will not come and accord that (unique status),” he had stated the other day.
The 30- year-old, corruption charges against whom were the driver to the collapse of the Grand Alliance federal government, is the alliance’s option for the post of the Chief Minister.
Up against the four-time Chief Minister, Tejashwi Yadav appeared undaunted.
” Nitish Kumar lacks vision. There’s absolutely nothing brand-new,” stated the leader of the opposition, insisting that the state still struggles with the twin evils of poverty and unemployment.
” The rate of joblessness in Bihar is still 46.6 per cent, the greatest in the country,” he informed NDTV. “Every second family has problems here. On education, health, work … individuals have substantial anger and animosity versus this double engine federal government,” he added.
On Nitish Kumar’s jibe that he does not have experience, Tejashwi Yadav retorted with a question. “Why did he make me a deputy Chief Minister? I was involved in a great deal of development tasks,” he stated, rattling a list of his accomplishments.
He also said throughout his tenure as the minister for Roadway Building and construction, Building Constructions & Backward Class Development, he had actually handled to utilize up the Central funds to bring development in the state.
With Lalu Yadav accused in a string of corruption cases, it was his 2 kids– Tejashwi and Tej Pratap Yadav– who were rewarded with ministerial posts when the Grand Alliance of his Rashtriya Janata Dal, Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United and the Congress came to power in 2015.
But it was Lalu Yadav who served as the minister in charge, turning up unannounced in areas under his boys’ control and issuing orders and punishments to authorities.
On the most significant claims of Nitish Kumar and the BJP– that Lalu Yadav and Rari Delhi had carried out a reign of worry, “Atank Raj”, throughout their 15- year period– Tejashwi Yadav stated, “We were ruling for 18 months. You can see NCRB information. When BJP-JDU came together, the NCRB figures have been worrying”.
A BJP leader stated there has been a drop in criminal offense figures throughout the 18 months of the Grand Alliance guideline due to the fact that of prohibtion and Nitish Kumar heading the state Home Department.
