His message is that RJD will be the support of all the poor, destitute, farmers and unemployed.
Their fight will be fought. Lalu Yadav has given the promise to stand with the people in which the people are today.
He wished that his greatest gift would be that every unemployed in Bihar would get employment, no one would sleep hungry. Today’s government cannot feed the poor. The Bihar government denied its own people to Bihar. Now millions of people have become unemployed.

Will reply at the right time. Tejashwi Yadav said that today was Lalu Yadav’s birthday, Nitish Kumar would have at least called.
If Lalu Yadav is a corrupt man, then why resort to him in 2015? Why leave BJP? He has become the Chief Minister on the strength of Lalu Yadav. Nitish Kumar’s level has fallen. When you needed help, help, then Lalu Yadav did not look corrupt. The public is aware.
Nitish Kumar is worried about elections, we are concerned about the poor.
The people of Bihar know that Nitish Kumar’s chair is slipping.
