Ahead of the floor test in the Bihar Assembly that is slated to be held on August 24, newly appointed Deputy Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Friday slammed Bharatiya Janata Party for speaking ‘jumla jhoot’ (propagating lies) and not working at the grassroots level for the development of the country.
“I am glad to know that since the time, the Mahagathbandhan decided to come together, we have begun talking about employment, about the future of the youth. On the contrary, when BJP was in power, only Hindu-Muslim and Mandir-Masjid were the issues discussed. Poison was being sown in society,” Tejashwi Yadav told agencies.
Tejashwi Yadav asserted that he will fulfil the aspirations of the youth soon and lashed out at the BJP for making bogus claims on unemployment issues. “Now, our focus is to fulfil the aspirations of the youth. Just wait for a few more days. You will soon know about how work for the people’s welfare happens while being in power.
On the contrary, I challenge the claims made by BJP about providing employment. Forget providing 19 lakh jobs to the people of Bihar, they (BJP) have not even provided 19 jobs.
In the country, they promised to provide over 2 crore jobs to the people.
They have not even provided close to 80 lakh jobs till now,” Yadav told to agencies. Yadav added, “Till 2022, the Centre promised to make India a Rs 5 trillion economy and launch bullet trains. What is the reality of such claims? The Centre was going to provide a special package to the people of Bihar. Where is that? The Centre says ‘jumla jhoot’. The ‘sleeping media’ will wake up.” “Because of the support of Nitish Kumar Ji, issues like unemployment are being raised. We are talking about real issues. We will surely fulfil the aspirations of the youth of the country,” he added.
