Bihar Elections 2020: Leader of Opposition in Bihar Tejashwi Yadav fired a fresh salvo at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, saying the CM’s chair was the first and last truth for him. Taking to Twitter, Tejashwi said Kumar was not bothered about the youth, women, disadvantaged, farmers, labourers, and students.
Tejashwi’s attack comes a day after the RJD-led Grand Alliance (GA) on Saturday released its joint manifesto for the upcoming Bihar assembly elections, promising to offer jobs to 10 lakh youngsters and repealing the new farm laws recently enacted by the central government if they are voted to power.
आदरणीय नीतीश कुमार जी थक चुके है। येन केन प्रकारेण कुर्सी से चिपक कर उम्र बिताने के सिवाय उनके जीवन का अब कोई ध्येय नहीं है।
उन्हें युवाओं, किसानों, मज़दूरों, छात्रों, महिलाओं और ग़रीबों की कोई चिंता नहीं है। वो कुर्सी को ही प्रथम और अंतिम सत्य मान चुके है।

Releasing the manifesto titled “Badlav Ka Sankalp” (commitment to change), Tejashwi Yadav said their government, if elected, would first approve the process for appointments on about 10 lakh jobs in the government.
“Contractual teachers would be entitled to same pay for same work, for which they have been agitating for long,” said Yadav, who is the opposition chief ministerial candidate. Assuring the people that the coalition will stand by its commitments, Yadav said that they were not leaders who conveniently forget their promises and that the state has still not been accorded a special status — a demand echoed for years by political parties in Bihar.
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said, “Bihar has double engine government. Nitish Kumar has been governing the state for the last 15 years but it has not been accorded the special category status yet. Donald Trump will not come and accord that.”
While releasing the manifesto on Saturday, Tejashwi Yadav said, “It is an auspicious day as it is the first day of Navratri and we are starting a new chapter by launching the manifesto of Mahagathbandhan for the upcoming Bihar Elections 2020.”
Yadav said that their aim is to bring change in Bihar, to revive it, to make it better. On the first day of Navratri RJD leader, Tejashwi Yadav promised that people at equal work will get equal pay. He also said that once elected to power they will waive loans of the farmers. The Mahagathbandhan manifesto also mentioned about providing electricity in the rural areas and better facilities to the citizens.
