The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) unveiled its vision document for the impending Bihar assembly elections. The document promises 'much-awaited' development’. 'Grand Alliance' led by Nitish-Kumar was slammed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying it is now time for ending the "jungle raj" in Bihar.
Jaitley termed the Congress-JD(U)-RJD alliance as ‘opportunistic’. He said that none of the participants of the alliance has the virtue of "political consistency". He also added that all the three parties of the alliance have failed the Bihar people.
"We need to rescue Bihar from backwardness. Congress, JD(U )and RJD have ruled Bihar for 68 years but have not done much for it. Our vision document is a charter for development," Jaitley said.
"Youths from Bihar move to other states looking for jobs. We want to bring an end to it," he added.
The Finance Minister also cited the credentials of BJP saying that, "Madhya Pradesh was among BIMARU states - there were no roads, no electricity. But we changed it in 15 years."
Jaitley said that the BJP-led alliance’s Chief Minister Candidate would be named after the elections. The neck to neck Bihar polls are scheduled to be conducted from 12 October and conclude on 5 November. The results of the Bihar elections would be out on 8 November 2015.
