Nitish Kumar had then said that his government had changed the industrial policy of Bihar and would invite many new industries in the state.
Kumar said, “It is impossible, he will not get a chance to rule. But what he (Tejashwi) has said will cost the state Rs 1.44 lakh crore annually … Will he have to complete all other developmental works needed?”
He said that earlier no one was paid on time and remembered that many teachers and university professors had told the Chief Minister during 2005 that they had not received their salary on time.
“We fixed that. Now, what do they want to do? Again not paying salaries? Will there be no other (development) work?” Mr. Kumar said.
“Where will they give the jobs from? Where will they create the posts from? And where is the money?” he added. The chief minister said the promise has been made just to “create confusion” in society.
The first phase of Bihar elections to 71 seats was held on October 28. The remaining 172 assembly constituencies of the 243-member assembly will go to polls on November 3 and November 7. The results will be declared on November 10.
