I am in politics and and I even have a dream – of a unique Bihar. Let me make it clear that I haven’t got any factor private in opposition to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who can be the face of the NDA within the approaching election. My determination to go solo and break from the NDA in Bihar was borne of my conviction that if my state has to develop, then it wants a double-engine authorities in letter and in spirit the place a BJP chief is answerable for the state work in tandem with our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s imaginative and prescient for Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
You look at the efficiency of Nitish Kumar after he returned to the NDA fold in 2017. It is all about him and his Saat Nischay (7 Resolutions for Good Governance) which is a serious den of corruption. I request each citizen of India to journey to Bihar and see for themselves and choose whether or not the work and cash spent beneath these schemes have given pathetic outcomes of pathetic outcomes.
It is nothing lower than looting tax-payers’ cash. Sorry, I can not be a part of his agenda of mid-governance. Simply to impress and insult us, he unveiled Saat Nischay Half 2.
That is why my most important goal stays a BJP-led authorities which works on and with an NDA agenda of governance. Even once we have been a part of his authorities, he hardly engaged with allies and I do not wish to be a part of any authorities the place my agenda’s ignored.
On my “Bihar First, Bihari First” mission, we have now taken suggestions from over 4 lakh folks and integrated each suggestion into this manifesto for the state. If migration of staff to different states is large challenge, then please see, we have now provide you with options. The identical method has been taken for the dearth of improvement and industrialisation. Or to be higher ready for floods. Or to enhance the poor training. For every of those challenges, we have now an motion plan prepared within the eventuality of a BJP-led authorities coming to energy. That’s my most important purpose.
I must stress that I used to be actually working out of endurance with this Nitish Kumar model of “15 saal pahle aisa tha, aur ab itna kiya, santosh karo” (15 years in the past, it was like this, now have finished a lot, be blissful). You’re simply not open to any new or trendy concepts and this kind of mindset will sink the folks of Bihar and I cannot settle for that. Nitish Kumar’s bar is low- he’s evaluating a foul state of affairs to a worse one. I’ve to attract a line in opposition to this kind of administration.
You see how our Prime Minister Narendra Modi features and performs – he’s my function mannequin for governance. It is due to him that we have now been with the NDA since 2014 – not like Nitish Kumar who walked out, challenged the PM. That’s betrayal. It’s a completely different matter that individuals taught him a lesson and in the end, he has to return and search refuge with the PM once more.
Sure, I’m firmly with the PM however the determination I’ve taken additionally permits me to behave for the betterment of my folks. So when folks requested why I left the NDA in Bihar, it was not about what number of seats we have been being given to contest. We hardly mentioned that. My social gathering leaders and staff urged me to guard the curiosity of Bihar and Biharis. I used to be not capable of have a BJP chief named the presumptive Chief Minister however now I’m specializing in a BJP head of state after the election.
Let me guarantee you- we’ll drive Nitish Kumar out.
