    What all PM said in first set of rallies

    In his first visit, PM addressed three rallies. In all three rallies, he targeted the opposition parties, mainly the RJD which has ruled Bihar for over a decade when Lal Prasad Yadav was the chief minister. He blamed the RJD for pushing Bihar into darkness by letting criminals and extortionists operate without fear of law. He said it was complete lawlessness (known as jungle raj) under previous governments in Bihar. He also said that parties or leaders who are projecting themselves as leaders for the future were greedy and won’t deliver on jobs as they had a history of turning employment opportunities into a money-making (bribe) industry. “Bihar is entitled to employment and entrepreneurship. Who can ensure this? Those who consider giving government jobs as a means of earning bribes or those who are working to improve Bihar’s Ease of Doing Business and Skill Mapping,” the Prime Minister said in Bhagalpur.

    UPA blocked Nitish from working: PM Modi in Bihar

    Prime Minister Modi in is last rally said that the Congress government in the Centre had blocked Nitish Kumar from working out of vengeance as the people of Bihar threw it out of power in the state. Refering to RJD-Congress alliance, the PM said that “these are the people who stalled every project of Bihar. In 15 years of their rule, they looted Bihar. You (people) had given them power but they used that power to fill their coffers. They (Congress-RJD) got frustrated when you elected Nitish Kumar as chief minister of Bihar. After this, for 10 years, these people while being in power in the Centre vent out their frustration on the people of Bihar.” “When I was Gujarat chief minister and Nitish Ji attended UPA’s central meetings, Nitish Ji always told them – don’t stall Bihar’s development. But for 10 years, those who were defeated in Bihar were angry, they influenced the Centre and ensured Nitish ji cannot work. They wasted Bihar’s 10 years,” PM Modi said.
