New Delhi, July 25 (ANI): Launching a frontal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will arrive in Bihar on a day-long visit today, state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has posed seven questions quizzing the former about black money retrieval, farmer issues and special status for Bihar.
“We’re grateful after 14 months Modiji finds time to visit Bihar. As we get ready to hear more promises what about his old ones?” Nitish said in a series of tweets.
“I am raising 7 critical issues – 2 specific to Bihar and 5 that in my view people across India want to hear from the Prime Minister,” he added.
The Bihar Chief Minister further asked the Prime Minister about the famed ‘Acche Din’ and the issue of black money retrieval.
“People are awaiting to get their 15-20L from the black money you promised to bring back from abroad. Could we hear something on this?” said Nitish.
He also took the NDA government to task on its U-turn on Minimum Support Price to farmers and the contentious Land Bill.
“First U-turn on MSP, then your apathy towards farmers’ distress, and finally your new land bill. Is this what you promised to farmers?” Nitish asked.
The Bihar Chief Minister also raised the demand for a special status for Bihar.
“You promised special status for Bihar. 14 months and people are still waiting,” said Nitish
“With 14th Finance Commission report and withdrawal of BRGF, Bihar to lose 50,000 cr. in 5 years. Is this your cooperative federalism ?” he added.
The Prime Minister will participate in several programmes in Patna today and reportedly address a ‘Parivartan’ rally at Muzaffarpur.
He will also inaugurate the ambitious ‘Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gramjyoti Yojana’. (ANI)
