Nitish Kumar poses seven questions to PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday arrived in Patna to kickstart the BJP’s poll campaign. He inaugurated the campus of the Indian Institute of Technology, Patna.

Quick to launch an attack, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar posed seven questions to the Prime Minister. Here are they:

1 “We’re grateful after 14 months Modiji finds time to visit Bihar. As we get ready to hear more promises what about the old ones?”
2 “You promised Special Status for Bihar. 14 months and people are still waiting.”
3 “With the14th Finance Commission report and withdrawal of BRGF (Backward Regional Grant Fund), Bihar [is set to] to lose Rs. 50,000 crore in five years. Is this your cooperative federalism?”
4 “People are awaiting to get their Rs 15-20 lakh from the blackmoney you promised to bring back from abroad. Could we hear something on this?”
5 “First U-turn on MSP, then your apathy towards farmers’ distress and finally your new Land Bill. Is this what you promised to farmers?”
6 “By 2022 you have promised house for everybody with facility of electricity and water. How would be fulfilled without allocation of fund or any plan so far?”
7 “You started Jan Dhan scheme to make people believe that it’s not only a bank account, but it’s opening [their] fortune. Today more than 70 per cent accounts are ineffective. Nobody knows how poor would be benefited from such bank accounts?”
