Bihar polls: Will go to people with work, BJP will take help of jumla, says Nitish Kumar
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said the BJP will go to people in the forthcoming state Assembly Elections taking help of "jumla" (euphemism), but he will seek the people's mandate on account of his work.
Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said the BJP will go to people in the forthcoming state Assembly Elections taking help of "jumla" (euphemism), but he will seek the people's mandate on account of his work.
"Others would go to the people taking help of 'jumla' to befool the people on the basis of false promises once again," Kumar told reporters at the end of the Monsoon session of the Assembly, the last before the polls.
"We will seek votes on account of work done by the party and the government," he said.
Kumar and his secular alliance partners have been referring to BJP president Amit Shah's comment on the Prime Minister's assertions during the general elections saying if black money returned to the country, everybody would get Rs 15-20 lakh out of it, as a "jumla" (euphemism).
Kumar said despite short duration of the Monsoon session, many works were achieved and many new legislation passed by both the Houses of Bihar Legislature.
Referring to passage of the Public Grievance Redressal legislation for time-bound redressal of people's complaints, he said, the government was prepared for discussion on any issue, but the opposition did not allow it.
"Opposition lost valuable time (by disrupting the House and not allowing discussions to take place)," he said.
Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary today adjourned the Assembly sine die. The Legislative Council was also adjourned sine die after the day's proceedings.
