The face of the Grand Alliance, Tejashwi Yadav hits back at Nitish Kumar with an old video of PM where the PM accuses the party for scams.
RDJ leader Tejashwi Yadav is the prime competitor for the Chief Minister position against incumbent Nitish Kumar. Nitish Kumar has already served for three term. If he wins this we will see Nitish Kumar for a fourth term.
Tejashwi Yadav has attacked Nitish Kumar by stating that his party has been involved in over 60 scams and the monetary value of these scams is over 30,000 crore.
Not one to accuse without any proof, Tejashwi backed his allegations with a proof from an old clip of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In the clip, PM lists over 30 scams that are connected to the state government.
“Under respected Nitish Kumar ji, over 60 scams of over 30,000 crore have happened. Of these, 33 were listed by PM Modi five years back…You can listen for yourself,” Tejashwi Yadav tweeted in Hindi this morning, adding on to the scams mentioned by PM Modi.
“The people of Bihar know… I want to remind the younger generation…,” PM Modi is heard saying in the video shared by the RJD leader. He talks about over 30 scams linked to the state government from all sectors of society, from engineering colleges, purchase of medicines, sale of liquor, mid-day meals among others.
However, it’s not clear where PM Modi is speaking and which government he is talking about.
How Is This Relevant?
This clip is important because now The Prime Minister is backing the so called corrupt state government.
Prime Minister Modi has been rallying all around Bihar with Nitish Kumar and has been vocal in BJP’s backing to the Janta Dal United’s leader.
PM Modi had directly attacked Tejashwi Yadav a few days back. He called Yadav ‘Jungle Raj ka Yuvraj’
This open attack led many to perceive towards the growing nervousness in the BJP about the opposition party.
Even though the Prime Minister is backing Nitish Kumar, it did not stop him from taking a few digs at his foe turned ally.
The two most prominent of them were the PM’s dig about Article 370 and the making of the Ayodhya temple.
The Bihar elections will be held in 3 phases. One phase is already over and the two other phases will decide the future of Bihar. If not Bihar then that of Nitish Kumar. The results of the elections will be out by 10 November.
Tejashwi Yadav is the son of RDJ supremo Lalu Yadav. Lalu Yadav was the Chief Minister of Bihar for 15 years. He is currently in jail with regards to a corruption case.
