We have many capable leaders from backward classes: Giriraj Singh

Pankaj Kumar | October 27, 2015



You said that Bihar CM will be from extreme backward or backward caste. Are you scared of the grand alliance?

Lalu Prasad is trying to divide the society on caste lines. It is our responsibilities to tell the truth. We sacrificed to prevent the state from bad governance but Lalu ji is now saying that every third person is homeless and 71 percent households have lesser income than 5000 rupees. We want to ask him who has ruled the state for twenty five years, BJP or Lalu and Nitish? By making a statement about the new Bihar CM, I tried to show Lalu Prasad the mirror as he was trying to mislead people. We have many leaders from backward and extreme backward classes. Sushil Modi, Prem Kumar, Nand Kishore Yadav, Hukmdev Narayan Yadav are among them. Even our PM is from extreme backward class and he has always been a voice of the neglected society. I wanted to make it clear that BJP has always fought for neglected society. We have several leaders from OBC and EBC who can become the chief minister of the state.

Your supporters claim that even you the best CM candidate

No, this is not true.

Are you softer towards your ace rival Nitish Kumar?

No, not at all. Nitish ji responsible for everything. Earlier he used to talk about development, governance, law and order but after snapping ties with us he is talking of caste, creed and religion. You can see the difference.
 

Nitish is asking voters to vote for Bihari and not for ‘Bahri’ (outsider).

PM Modi has always said that eastern states of India need to prosper. Bihar is on the top most priority. The state needs his vision to grow and that’s why we need his leadership. He will choose the leader of the state. but we need his vision to prosper.  This is our faith in his leadership and Nitish should not question it.

Are you concerned about the local issues?

We are concerned for development. Prime minister has a clear vision that the model for development will be based on geographical requirement of the state. PM said Bihar has paani and jawani ( youth and water ). In almost 31 districts there is abundance of water but we get fishes from other states. We need a government which can govern the state with proper coordination with the centre.
