Jaitley releases the party’s vision document for the Bihar elections
GN Bureau | October 1, 2015
Ahead of prime minister Narendra Modi’s election meeting in Bihar tomorrow, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) today released its vision document for the Bihar assembly elections.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley, who released the vision document, slammed the Nitish Kumar led 'Grand Alliance' and said that it's time to end the "jungle raj" in Bihar. Jaitley claimed that Nitish’s ally Lalu Prasad Yadav had prepared a false report on the Godhra train accident when he was the Railways Minister.
Jaitley accused the RJD of resorting to politics that aimed at dividing the society, even as he reiterated the 'Jungle Raj' barb to target the Mahagathbandhan alliance comprising JDU, RJD and Congress.
Jaitley said all these three parties had failed the people of Bihar. "We need to rescue Bihar from backwardness. Congress, JD(U )and RJD have ruled Bihar for 68 years but have not done much for it. Our vision document is a charter for development," Jaitley said.
"Youths from Bihar move to other states looking for jobs. We want to bring an end to it," Jaitley said.
Citing BJP's development credentials, Jaitley said "Madhya Pradesh was among BIMARU states - there were no roads, no electricity. But we changed it in 15 years."
Riding on the ambitious policies of the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, the BJP vowed to initiate campaigns like Make in Bihar and Digital Bihar if the party wins the Assembly elections.
Offering a range of promises, the senior BJP leader offered various sops like colour television sets for Dalits and Mahadalits, clean water, street lights, laptops and shops for employed youth.
