Patna (Bihar) [India], Aug 1 (ANI): RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday launched a scathing attack on "self-proclaimed good governance" claim of Bihar government and slammed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over AES, heat-wave deaths and scams breaking out in the state.
"Over 200 children died due to AES, around the same number of people lost their lives due to heat-wave and girls were raped in a government shelter. Over 40 scams took place in the state in the past 14 years," Yadav said in a statement.
"A state like Bihar, which has large poor population and income less than the national average, needs a sensitive government because their every decision directly impacts the weak section of society," he added.
Yadav also underlined the lack of investment, new industries and employment opportunities in the state.
"Every year, some areas are affected by drought while others are affected by floods and the poor farmers have to face the calamities themselves. If the government fails to save the people from the impacts of these natural disasters, what is the point of electing a government in the first place?" he said.
"Over 60 per cent of the population in Bihar is young. The people of the state do not need a conservative government but one that helps them meet their aspirations," he added. (ANI)
