Tejashwi Yadav vs Nitish Kumar. Who will win? While this question will be answered on the 10th of November, both the parties are not finished with mocking each other.
Tejashwi has latched on to the fact that Nitish Kumar has grown old and is not able to handle Bihar.
“Nitish Kumar is unable to handle Bihar. There are vacant jobs in education, health and law and order. There are only 77 policemen per lakh population in Bihar. How come even Manipur has more per lakh? We’re asking the public to give us a chance, so we can do what Nitish Kumar couldn’t achieve in 15 years. His bidai (farewell) is guaranteed and a Mahagatbandhan government coming,” Tejashwi Yadav told
Whereas Nitish Kumar keeps on bringing Yadav’s father and his former life into his increasingly aggressive speeches.
The incumbent minister is rattled at the support the opposition is gathering and is trying to shift focus in any way possible.
He recently spoke out with distaste about Tejashwi Yadav’s former career as a cricketer.
Nitish Kumar, in an interview on Sunday was asked about his competitors, Tejashwi Yadav and Chirag Paswan, attacking him with controversial comments. “How does it matter, one was from the field of cricket, another from cinema, let them have their publicity,”
To which the 31 year old replied with out batting an eyelid
“What has happened to Nitish Kumar? Being such an experienced politician, how can he talk like that? Can we not come into politics from cricket and films? Does he mean that doctors, engineers can’t come either?”
“The sportsman spirit, leadership qualities, team work, all this I learnt from cricket. In fact, I got the biggest exposure from cricket,” said Tejashwi, the chief ministerial candidate of the Mahagatbandhan that also includes the Congress and the Left.
Tejashwi Yadav has been leading the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) while his father Lalu Yadav is serving jail time for corruption. Yadav had played state-level cricket and was a member of the Delhi IPL team before joining politics.
