Bihar govt high on power and ego: Sonia Gandhi

Attacking the Nitish Kumar’s cabinet in Bihar, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that it is high on power and its ego, and the current government has deviated from its path.

“Neither their saying nor doing is good. Labourers are helpless, farmers are anxious and youth are disappointed,” in a four-minute video ahead of the first phase of voting on Wednesday, she said.

She noted people are bearing the brunt of the fragile state of the economy in Bihar.

Gandhi asserted that the public is with Congress and Grand Alliance and it is the call of Bihar.

“A serious crisis has befallen the farmers of India. The lives of Dalits and Mahadalits have been destroyed and similar is the fate of the backward sections of society,” Congress chief charged.

Campaigning in the first phase of Bihar assembly election 2020 ended on Monday as the state goes to polls from October 28.

Altogether 1066 candidates are in the fray for the first phase of elections.
