New Delhi, Sept.14 (ANI): The Congress Party on Monday took a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for addressing the JD(U)-RJD rule in Bihar as ‘jungle raj’, reminding the ruling party at the Centre about the scams that have surfaced in the last 15 months.
“We want BJP chief Amit Shah ji to look into his own party before pointing out faults in Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar. You (BJP) need to understand what a ‘jungle raj’ actually is,” said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.
“The ‘jungle raj’ started when the farmers were exploited during the rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi because of his various policies. It was ‘jungle raj’ when the ‘bada Modi’ helped ‘chota Modi’ and moreover External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje helped Lalit Modi even on a foreign soil,” he added.
Surjewala also pointed out the Vyapam scam in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh in which around 70 lakh youth were cheated actually signified the ‘jungle raj’.
“Farmers from all over had to commit suicide. And the BJP called these farmers cowards. The BJP promised to bring back the black money in 100 days of their rule, but it was all forgotten. The Congress left the economy in a good shape and the BJP’s rule reduced the economy to complete bankruptcy,” he added.
BJP chief Amit Shah, who announced the NDA’s seat-sharing strategy for the Bihar Assembly polls earlier this afternoon, grabbed the opportunity to lash out at the JD(U)-RJD and alleged that the grand alliance is responsible for the ‘jungle raj’ in the state.
Polls for the 243-member Bihar Assembly will be held in five phases starting on October 12 and ending on November 5. Counting of votes will take place on November 8. (ANI)
