PATNA: Hitting back at Tejaswhi Yadav's barbs that education and health sectors were destroyed under the reign of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, President of the BJP in Bihar Sanjay Jaiswal on Friday took a jibe at the Lalu Prasad's family, saying that if voted to power they will help the "sons of two former CMs (Lalu Yadav and Rabri Devi) help clear class 10 exams".
Jaiswal was responding to allegations levelled by Tejashwi Yadav that Bihar's Chief Minister destroyed Health, education and Industries in the state.
"If you talk about Education, for the last 15 years, Nitish Kumar was the chief minister and he distributed cycles, books and uniforms for students, but two chief ministers couldn't motivate both of their sons to pass class 10 exams. It is a matter of concern.
The person who is alleging, who is the child of two chief ministers couldn't pass 10th in 15 years of Nitish rule. We will make sure to help those from RJD who couldn't clear the 10th exam so that they can pass next time," Jaiswal said.
Tejashwi had accused the Nitish Kumar government of ruining the state by not addressing to the grievances of the people.
"Nitish Kumar has never focused on health, education, earnings and irrigation. He never heard the grievances. Just because of these issues, people migrate to other states but my government will focus on Education, health, earnings, irrigation and will act on grievances," Tejashwi said.(THE NEW INDIAN EXPRESS)
