Propaganda Only Continues, Special Status Demand Unfulfilled, Bihar CM Pops Up At Modi Govt

In a veiled hostage situation at the Narendra Modi government in the Center, Bihar’s chief minister, Nitish Kumar, claimed that “prachar prasar” (propaganda) was going on with little supply for the poorer states.

Kumar, who cut ties with the BJP two months ago, also complained that the long-standing demand for special status for Bihar, which “all poor states should be given”, was not being accepted.

“Is anything worthwhile happening in poor states? Only propaganda is going on (Garib gurba rajyon mein kuchh ho raha hai? Jhuthe prachar prasar mein laga rahta hai),” the twenty-seven-year-old said Thursday without naming names.

Bihar’s longest-serving prime minister, who has called for a united opposition to face the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, delivered a speech at the CM’s secretariat where he gave away nomination letters to nearly 200 Urdu translators and stenographers.

Kumar spoke at length about his government’s efforts to elevate the weaker sections of society, especially the minorities and Dalits.

“But we were left paralyzed because our request for a special status, which should be granted to all states, was not met,” noted the JD(U) leader, who had long been looking for the tag.

He spoke in the presence of his deputy Tejashwi Yadav and Education Minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, who both lavished praise on him for his commitment to community harmony.

The BJP’s state unit, which has been in pain since its loss of power in the state, has questioned the appointment of Urdu personnel as part of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ government’s pledge to provide jobs on a large scale.

“The intention of CM Nitish Kumar is to restore Urdu teachers in every school. Why is it necessary to employ Urdu-knowing people in Bihar assembly? Now Urdu translators will be appointed at every police station,” BJP spokesman Nikhil Anand said indignantly.

He claimed that “in the Muslim-dominated districts of Bihar, lives of Dalits, OBCs and EBCs are being ruined,” he added: “Brother, don’t create Pakistan in Bihar, go to Pakistan yourself.”
