    BHAGALPUR: In a dig at the BJP's election promise of 19 lakh jobs in Bihar, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that it was similar to that of depositing Rs 15 lakh in the bank accounts of the people.

    Addressing an election rally here, Gandhi alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar broke the backbone of the farmers, and medium and small businesses in the state.

    He said that Modi calls himself a nationalist but weakened the country over the last six years.

    "Economy is suppressed and farmers oppressed," Gandhi added.

    It seems He is waiting for 15 Lakhs in SB account. After mergers and consolidation, Jobs are lost. BJP is known anti reservation mindset, hence privatisation of PSUs is gaining pace. who cares for social justice and downtrodden. both parties are enriching themselves and we need people, who are honest and work towards welfare of public.
