Nitish promises change in UP similar to Bihar
SITUATION IN Uttar Pradesh is worse than it was at one time in Bihar. The latter (Bihar) is now back on the track. We wish to bring UP back on the track too, said Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar here today. He was speaking as chief guest at a rally organised jointly with Apna Dal. The rally was held on the occasion of the birthday of Chhatrapati Sahuji Maharaj and named ‘Vyavastha Parivartan Rally’.
Stating that the alliance with Apna Dal would be fruitful, he predicted its emergence as the third alternative in UP.Without naming other parties also likely to join the parivartan morcha, he said, “The alliance at present was with Apna Dal only but others would join us soon.”
Meanwhile, national president of the Janata Dal (U) Sharad Yadav, in a pointed attack at the UPA government, held it squarely responsible for the unprecedented price hike.
“Congress, he said was synonymous with price rise. We see steep rise in prices whenever Congress comes to power,” he said in an informal chat with the media.
He regretted that the country which had some time ago become self-reliant in food grains was facing a grim situation again. All this he said was because of faulty policies of the UPA government.
Commenting on Jaswant Singh’s statement in the Press, he said if he knew there was a mole in the PM office, he should have told PM Narsimha Rao about it.
He regretted the Mumbai and Kashmir blasts in which several persons lost their lives.
Making a dig at the administration of the UP government, he said there was no law and order worth its name left in the State. “Poor are being deprived of justice. There are no jobs for them. Youth was jobless in the State and politics has been commercialised by the sale of tickets,” he said, without naming the BSP.
