Sasaram: Concentrating his salvos at Lalu-Nitish alliance in Bihar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his blitzkrieg campaign ahead of first phase of Bihar assembly polls has accused Nitish of backstabbing former CM Jitan Ram Manjhi, whose HAM is an ally of NDA, he said the people will weed out Nitish and Lalu through the ballots.
“Jitan Ram Manjhi ji governed well despite opposition from his own party. Those who have ruined Bihar will be punished,” Modi said while addressing a massive gathering in Sasaram on Friday.
Referring to the recent surge in criminal activities in the state, Modi said “Only only industry has flourished in Bihar and that is the kidnapping industry. Yesterday evening, a police officer was shot at in Patna. This is jungle raj. There have been 4000 kidnappings in the state since January.”
“The ‘maha-swarthgathbandhan’ ruled Bihar for 60 years. They have ruined the state. They used to fight each other and now they have joined hands. Why? It is only for power. They must give an account of work they did in the last 60 years,” Modi said.
