Bihar Election: The Story of Rs 1.65 Lakh Crore

You will not going to believe this, when PM Modi announced this great statement, “So, the total package for Bihar comes to Rs. 1.65 lakh crore and this will change the fate of Bihar”,I was in my village. That time a really innocent person seating just next to me asked,

“आरे मोदी जी लटपटा कहे रहे है, ई लाख देंगे की करोड़, दुनो कहे बोल रहे है “.

“आरे भइया ई १६५००० करोड़ की बात कर रहे है, इसलिए ऐसा बोल रहे है “, I clearified.

He replied back “भाक इतना पैसा तो पुरे देश में नहीं होगा, झूट बोल रहा है”

He is the man who is working daily in field and earning pennies to serve his family. I don’t wanted to disappoint him by saying that such amount of money is owned but many of our respected corrupt politicians. I have given him a smile and went out of the room.

Anyways, later in the evening, I saw news again where BJP has disclosed the are where this will be consumed (but no timeline?)

“The Prime Minister has granted a comprehensive economic package to establish Bihar in the list of developing states so that it could become a self-reliant state,” Shah said.

The BJP president also said that in this package approved by the Centre, special attention has been given to the people of Bihar and their basic needs — power, roads and water.

The priority areas are roads, railways, airways, waterways and digital connectivity for the development of Bihar in this package.

Nitish’s Reaction

“Fifty thousand crore…sixty thousand crore… Lag raha tha koi boli lag rahi hai. PM ka aisa karna thik nahi laga (It looked as if some auction was going on. It is not befitting for a PM to do so),” said Nitish.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad also hit out at the PM. “The special package is an election bomb. It is something similar to black money return promise,” Lalu said and questioned the timing of the announcement. “The timing of the announcement is suspicious. Why he did not give it 15 months ago when he became PM? It could have helped the state,” he said.

The state of Bihar has given a lot to the history of humanity but in recent past we had given child labour, women harresment, theft, murder and corruption. I am here to raise the voice.!
