Highlighting his party’s agenda of development, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Monday reached out to the people of the state and said that they were forced to move out of the state in search of ‘padhai’, ‘kamai’ and ‘dawai’ (education, jobs and medicines).
Shah, who was addressing an election rally here, pointed out that all the states except Bihar have either developed or have moved ahead on the path of development.
“There are BJP governments in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. All these states have developed, but there is no development in Bihar as yet,” said Shah.
“You will have to change the government for changing your BIMARU identity,” he added.
The BJP president also thanked the people of Bihar for helping the BJP to form the government at the Centre under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership.
“After coming to power, Prime Minister Modi started formulating a strategy for the development of Bihar and allocated a development package of Rs 1.25 crore for overall development of the state,” Shah said.
“The development package announced by the Modi Government is not for you, it is for the people of Bihar, for the youth, women, farmers of Bihar,” he added.
