Senior RJD leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav on Monday alleged that the "double- engine" governments run by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre and in Assam are "useless" as they indulged in corruption spread hatred among people. Addressing his first election rally in Assam at Tinsukia, Tejaswi claimed that the saffron party practices the politics of hate.
"Inflation is at its peak. BJP governments are there in Assam and at the Centre. That means it is a double-engine government. But it is useless. Everywhere corruption is taking place and they are creating enmity between brothers. Politics of hate is happening," he said.
Urging people to support the Congress-led Grand Alliance in Assam of which the RJD is a part, the former deputy chief minister of Bihar described the BJP as the "Badka Jhoota Party" (Biggest Lying Party). "I had said (during campaigning for Bihar assembly polls) that 10 lakh government jobs would be given on the first cabinet meeting. The BJP copied that and claimed they would provide 20 lakh jobs.
"They formed the government by the back door. Now ask them where are the jobs? They cheated everyone," he said. Yadav was here to campaign for RJD candidate Hira Devi Choudhury, who is contesting from Tinsukia, a constituency having a sizeable number of Hindi speaking people.
