Union Home Minister addresses rally in Bihar

Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah said the people of Seemanchal region in Bihar had nothing to fear. “I have come to tell people of bordering districts that now Nitish Kumar is sitting in the lap of Lalu and there is an atmosphere of fear in the state. There are apprehensions among people but you have no reason to fear as there is Narendra Modi government at the center.”

Pitching a development agenda for the backward region of Bihar, Shri Shah listed the projects carried out or sanctioned by the Modi government in the four Seemanchal districts of Purnia, Katihar, Araria and Kishanganj, and promised an airport at Purnia.

Shri Amit Shah listed the grants sanctioned by Modi government such as Rs 1,000 crore for a national highway, plus funds for other roads, Rs 1,000 crore for an APJ Abdul Kalam Agriculture College, Rs 1,900 crore for a bridge over the Ganga near Manihari (Katihar), and Rs 45,000 crore for the Khagaria-Supaul rail division.

Calling Nitish Kumar a habitual betrayer, Shri Shah said he pursued the politics of ‘Swaarth aur Satta’. For his PM ambition, Nitish betrayed the politics of anti-Congressism (JP Movement), of which he is the product, he said. Warning the RJD Shri Shah said, “ Nitish betrayed George Fernandes, Sharad Yadav, Lalu Prasad, Jitan Ram Manjhi, Ram Vilas Paswan and the BJP twice and can ditch RJD for the Congress”.

Shri Shah who earlier held a meeting of the Bihar BJP’s core committee said that the party would not align with the JD(U) leader again. We have had enough of giving Nitish the benefit of doubt. Now people have to decide whether they want good governance or the return of “jungle raaj”.
