Nitish Kumar additionally implied that Tejashwi Yadav was inexperienced. “I see this promise about jobs however individuals do not have data or expertise (to satisfy this promise). Have you ever seen such a factor in your entire world? Why solely 10 lakh? When you’re giving jobs, then give jobs to everybody,” he mentioned.
Tejashwi Yadav, who plans to handle a document 12 conferences at this time, retorted: “I used to be Deputy Chief Minister. If I’m so inexperienced and immature, then why are BJP leaders chasing me with 20 helicopters? I’m a lone man and they’re so many. What’s their compulsion?”
The 31-year-old RJD chief additionally took on Nitish Kumar’s feedback ridiculing his jobs promise. “The Chief Minister is bodily and mentally drained. After his 15-year rule, he’s asking the place is the cash for jobs! Rs 30,000 crore is Bihar’s finances, the place is the cash? All gone in 60 scams on his watch. His Jal-Jeevan-Hariyali coverage has been assigned Rs 24,000 crore. It’s all going into corruption. He spent Rs 500 crore to brighten his face in advertisements. Then he makes this laughable remark about the place’s the cash to provide jobs,” Tejashwi Yadav mentioned.
“Nitish Kumar additionally mentioned there is no such thing as a ocean close to Bihar, so no industries and factories? Profitable and shedding is a part of the sport however this Chief Minister has misplaced it mentally and bodily. There’s a provision within the finances for 4.5 lakh jobs which can be vacant. And 5.5 lakh jobs extra are wanted for Bihar’s progress, in response to Niti Aayog. If there’s a will, it’s attainable.”
Tejashwi Yadav’s “10 lakh jobs” promise has additionally been mocked by BJP chief Devendra Fadnavis, who mentioned: “I heard Tejashwi Yadav will give jobs to 10 lakh individuals… They are going to give the order for 10 lakh country-made pistols and Bihar will once more see kidnappings and looting.”
