During a public rally in Purnia, Bihar, Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav slams the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not fulfilling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promise of granting special status to Bihar, which was made during a rally in Purnia eight years ago in 2014.
However, eight years have passed since then, and nothing has materialized. The people of Bihar are now questioning the government’s commitment to its promises.
Bihar is an important state in the political landscape of India, with 39 Members of Parliament (MPs) representing the state in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian Parliament. The state has been lagging behind in terms of development and economic growth, and the announcement of special status was seen as a ray of hope for the people of Bihar.
However, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Tejashwi Yadav, has accused the central government of not fulfilling its promises. Yadav said that the government had sold off major public sector companies like Railways, Oil, BHEL, Port, Airport, and BSNL and that only Gujaratis running the country.
Yadav’s statement has sparked a political controversy, with leaders of the ruling party denying any discrimination against Bihar or any other state. The government has stated that it is committed to the development of all regions of the country, including Bihar, and that it has implemented several schemes and programs for the state’s progress.
However, the people of Bihar remain skeptical about the government’s intentions, given the lack of progress in the state’s development. The promise of special status was seen as a game-changer for Bihar, but the lack of follow-through has left many feeling disillusioned.
Tejawhwi Yadav raised the issue of Bihar’s development which is likely to become a major campaign theme for upcoming elections. The ruling party will have to address the concerns of the people and convince them that it is committed to the state’s progress if it hopes to retain power.
