Chhapra (Bihar): The RJD and JD-U governments of the past 25 years have turned Bihar’s youths into migrants, forcing them to seek jobs outside the state, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday.

Addressing the first of four election rallies of Sunday at Maraurah in this district, about 80 km from Patna, Modi promised all-round development of Bihar if the BJP was voted to power in ongoing assembly elections.

“Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad are responsible for forcing people to leave the state. They made migrants of the youths of Bihar,” Modi thundered at an election rally, referring to the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leaders.

This was because nothing has been done by successive governments in the past quarter century to generate economic development in Bihar, he said.

The third round of staggered Bihar elections for 50 of the 243 assembly constituencies is due on Wednesday.

“If the BJP-led NDA comes to power in Bihar, I will soon look into how to develop Bihar by attracting investors to set up industries,” he said.

“We will make Bihar a developed state,” the Bharatiya Janata Party leader added.

Berating the Grand Alliance of the JD-U, RJD and Congress, Lalu Prasad asked the people to shun them.

He said Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad were to blame for the state’s backwardness.

“In the last 25 years Bihar has got no electricity, no development. It is the only state where electricity has not reached a majority of villages.

“We talk of development in our election rallies but they (Lalu and Nitish) talk of ‘Modi and Modi’.”

The BJP veteran said Lalu Prasad’s RJD should be known as ‘Rashtriya Jadu Tona Dal’ after the former Bihar chief minister claimed that he was the biggest tantric in the country.

He said the BJP-led four-party alliance wished to provide power, water, infrastructure, education for youth, and health facilities for the elders in Bihar.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the rape incidents in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao was “unacceptable”. He prodded him to speak.

He also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in these states of “protecting rapists”. “Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. What do you think about the growing violence against women and children? Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting. Speak up,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

“Thousands of men and women stood up to be counted in the battle for justice and to protest the rising acts of violence against girls and women.

“I thank each and everyone of you for your support. It shall not be in vain,” Gandhi said while attaching pictures of people who participated in the protest. Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. “We want the government to take action. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this. The women of the country should feel safe,” he had said. IANS
