NEW DELHI - The All India Minority Front (AIMF) chief SM Asif said on Thursday Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar cannot develop Bihar and govern it with jungle raj and RJD’s corruption on the other hand.
Targeting JDU and RJD for hindering development of Bihar for the sake of power, Asif said: “Both Lalu and Nitish ruled Bihar for 25 years and kept it underdeveloped and backward.”
Only an AIMF-led Bihar Progressive Alliance government, if it forms the next government, is committed to develop Bihar, he said. “People in Bihar are forced to live without safe drinking water, electricity, health and education facilities, courtesy the rule of Nitish and Lalu.”
In a statement, Mr Asif said reform in the educational system, loan waiver to farmers, flood crisis, and creation of jobs for everyone are some of the issues they will insist on inclusion in the agenda.
The AIMF leader said if they come to power, they will undo the injustices meted to the state and its people over the past 15 years.
“Anarchy is prevailing all over, as criminals are holding sway over the governance. People are compelled to migrate for sustenance, even as the government keeps patting itself on its back for development,” said Mr Asif.
He said jobs for every migrant, loan waiver scheme to farmers, revamping the policing system to rein in criminals, development of mothersa, and the revival of industries are part of the agenda they have offered.
