Patna: After Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar unveiled ‘Saath Nischay Part 2’, his challenger and the RJD’s chief ministerial face – Tejashwi Yadav – made 10 promises on Sunday.
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday said, “If the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) forms government in Bihar, then 10 lakh permanent, government jobs will be approved in the first Cabinet meeting itself.”
“If the RJD gets the opportunity to form a government then in the first Cabinet meeting, with the first signature itself 10 lakh jobs will be given. This is not just a promise, but a strong will… These will be government jobs and permanent ones,” Yadav said at a press conference here.
Mr Yadav’s promises will almost certainly appeal to unemployed people in the state, but it is unclear if this will translate to votes. Nevertheless, his critics have admitted his presentation of facts and figures has taken them by surprise, and could play a role in persuading voters that he means business.
