Patna: RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav released his party manifesto for Bihar elections on Saturday for Bihar Elections 2020 in Patna on Saturday and said that he will make efforts to create a new Bihar by bringing in overall development. Titled as “Hamara Pran” (Our Resolves), the RJD manifesto, running into 16 pages, has stressed on the promise of providing 10 lakh government jobs, teachers’ recruitment on war footing, a new industrial policy for the state, fair MSPs for farm produce and plans to develop smart villages.
While reiterating his promise of 10 lakh jobs, he also lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party for trying to “fool people”. “I am promising 10 lakh jobs. I could have also promised one crore jobs just for the sake of promise. But I am not doing that because this will become a reality in the first meeting of the Cabinet.This will be the first time in the country that 10 lakh employment opportunities will be created at one go. This figure is what we require in the state’s workforce at present,” Tejashwi said.
The RJD leader continued saying, there is a difference there is a difference between employment and job.
“A ragpicker is also employed but here we are talking about 10 lakh government jobs and it is set to become true during the first cabinet meeting itself. 4.5 lakh jobs are vacant in the healthcare services sector, the education department, etc. The post of seven per cent junior engineers is lying vacant,” he added.
