PM Modi will address three rallies - at Dehri-on Sone, Gaya, and Bhagalpur in Bihar to seek votes for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to conduct three rallies in Bihar on Friday, October 23, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and Bihar’s opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav did not lose the opportunity to tease the Prime Minister. Tejashwi Yadav, in his tweet, asks PM Modi to talk about education, employment, infrastructure, health, and other issues in his speeches.
आशा है प्रधानमंत्री जी आज बिहारवासियों को बतायेंगे कि शिक्षा,स्वास्थ्य,नौकरी,रोजगार, कृषि,उद्योग जैसे क्षेत्रों में बिहार 15 वर्षों से JDU-BJP सरकार के बावजूद भी राष्ट्रीय औसत के सबसे निम्नतम स्तर पर क्यों है?40 में से 39 MP देने वाले बिहार को NDA ने बेरोजगारी के सिवाय क्या दिया?

PM Modi will address three rallies – at Dehri-on Sone, Gaya, and Bhagalpur in Bihar to seek votes for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. There are reports that Nitish Kumar will also join PM Modi at the rallies in Dehri and Bhagalpur.
Employment is one of the major issues that the Mahagathbandhan parties, especially RJD, is talking about. In its election manifesto as well, RJD promised to provide 10 lakh jobs for the Biharis. Though, his manifesto could not explain how he would generate so many jobs. Whereas, RJD’s political ally and one of the members of the Mahagathbandhan, Congress has promised to give Rs 1500 as ‘Berojgaari Bhatta’ to the unemployed Biharis.
To counter the RJD’s promises, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), in its manifesto, also promised to give 19 lakh jobs. However, BJP could explain how and from where it will generate the jobs. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, while releasing the manifesto, explained the roadmap for infrastructure development in Bihar. She emphasized 5 elementary sectors and said that the government would focus on establishing factories in the state in the next 5 years.
Elections in Bihar are scheduled to happen in 3 phases. The first phase of voting would happen on October 28 on 71 seats. In the second and third phases, the voters of Bihar would cast their votes on November 3 on 94 seats and on November 7 on 78 seats. The results would be declared on November 10.
