Bihar Assembly Election 2020: Tejashvi Yadav releases RJD’s manifesto, promises 10 lakh govt jobs

Chief ministerial candidate of Mahagathbandhan and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday released the party’s election manifesto ahead of the first phase of Bihar Assembly elections on October 28 and promised 10 lakh government jobs to the people of state. He said the party could have promised one crore jobs but he does not want to fool the voters of Bihar. Yadav said he was not making the promise just to get publicity and that his intentions were genuine as he wanted to ensure good employment opportunities for people of the state.

While launching a sharp attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party, which has promised 19 lakh jobs and free coronavirus vaccine for the people in the state, Yadav said that the saffron party is fooling the people of Bihar as Nitish Kumar has already said he can’t provide more jobs in the state. Yadav said people are making fun of the BJP and asking them as to how it will generate 19 lakh jobs in Bihar. He said, unlike the BJP, his party is determined to generate government jobs in the state. There are employment opportunities for teachers, professors, junior engineers, doctors, nurses, and policemen for maintaining the law and order situation in the state, Yadav said.

Yadav hit out at Bihar’s deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi and said he did nothing to help the lakhs of migrant workers who were returning back to state in April during the lockdown. He said the state has not forgotten how Modi left migrants to fend for themselves and made no efforts to bring them back citing lack of resources. He critisised Modi’s statement that the crime rate in the state would go up as migrants had been rendered jobless.
