‘Pati-Patni’ served themselves: Bihar CM | Patna News

AURANGABAD/PATNA: Launching a scathing attack on RJD’s first family, JD(U) national president and CM Nitish Kumar said in an election rally at Nabinagar assembly segment in Aurangabad district on Saturday that half of the family of ‘pati-patni’ is already behind bars and the rest will also spend major part of their lives in prison.
“Because of the work that those people did for 15 years, they are behind bars. The others will also follow the suit,” Nitish said while addressing the rally in support of JD(U) candidate from Nabinagar Virendra Kumar Singh and HAM(S) candidate from Kutumba segment Shravan Bhuiyan.
Nitish enumerated the achievements of his government in the last 15 years and made several election promises, including providing water to every farm and empowerment of women.
Attacking the opposition without naming anyone, the CM said ‘husband and wife’ government lasted for 15 years, but they worked only for themselves. Nitish said the state’s annual income in 2005-06 was Rs 76,466 crore, which has now increased to Rs 4,14,977 crore.
“Crime was at its peak and massacres were rampant 15 years ago. There was no development at all. Doctors and traders were scared of their lives. We have changed the atmosphere and there is rule of law and justice in the state now,” he said.
Nitish counted the achievements of his government in 15 years and said his goal was development with justice. “According to a report of the central government, in the year 2018, Bihar was on 23rd rank in the country in terms of crime. The rule of law is established. Bihar’s growth rate is highest at 12.5%. Bihar’s achievement is also good in terms of per capita income. Women have been given 50% reservation in panchayati raj system and girls given cycles and clothes. Due to this, the number of school-going girls has increased manifold,” Nitish said.
Meanwhile, at Dinara assembly constituency in Rohtas district, Nitish made a fervent appeal to people to make his cabinet colleague and science & technology minister Jai Kumar Singh victorious for the third consecutive term.
Addressing an election rally at the Baldev High School ground in Dinara, Nitish praised the hard work done by Jai Kumar and appeled to people to ensure his victory for more development works.
“Jai Kumar Singh is very laborious. He does too much work. He does lots of labour. Except for the development-related works, he never came to me for any other work. Whatever assignments I gave to him, he did them very well. As a minister, he is very hardworking,” Nitish said.
Dinara has turned out as a prestigious seat for the JD(U) after the entry of a senior BJP leader, Rajendra Prasad Singh, as an LJP candidate.
