Patna: On Friday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said on the question of Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav’s promise to give jobs to 10 lakh people, that what Tejashwi Yadav has said is correct. We are trying and we will do our best. All efforts will be made for jobs. Let us inform that Tejashwi Yadav made a big statement on Wednesday immediately after taking oath as the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar.
Tejashwi Yadav had said that we will give bumper jobs to the poor and youth within a month. He said that jobs will be given on such a large scale as never before. Deputy CM said that our fight has been against unemployment. Our CM has felt the pain of the poor and the youth. He said that the grand alliance is so strong that BJP will be the only party left for the opposition in the assembly.
Nitish also reacted to the statement of former Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi in which Modi said that Tejashwi Yadav has got bullet proof and Z plus security as soon as he became Deputy CM, he has come to rule, not to serve. Nitish Kumar said why should he oppose it? Tejashwi is the Deputy CM. Why should he not have Z+ security? It is useless to raise his (Sushil Modi) question.
Taking a jibe at Sushil Modi, Nitish said that some people will accuse me and do nonsense, so that they can get some benefit from it in their party. Nitish said that those who were completely ignored by his party, if they are speaking against me, then it is good that they speak so that they can get something.
When Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was asked that he is being seen as the Prime Minister’s face, in response to this question, he said that I say with folded hands, I have no such idea. My job is to work for everyone. I will try to see that all opposition parties work together. If they do that, that would be great.
Asked about his role in opposition unity at the national level, Nitish Kumar said, “We would like to unite everyone. I am doing positive work. I am getting a lot of calls, but first I will do my bit here.
