PM Modi attacks RJD in Bihar, says migration for jobs from state increased during "jungle raj"

Bettiah: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on the RJD in Bihar, saying that when "jungle raj" came to the state, migration increased and future of lakhs of students of the state was put at stake.
Addressing a rally here as part of BJP's preparations for the Lok Sabha polls, PM Modi said it is essential for Bihar to be developed for "viksit Bharat" and the NDA government in the state has given speed to development works.
"For a Viksit Bharat, it is essential for Bihar to be developed. After the double-engine development in Bihar, there is a speed in the works related to a developed Bihar. Today, Bihar has got a gift of around Rs 13,000 crore," he said.
The Prime Minister began his speech by apologising for his late arrival and said there was a 12 km long roadshow in West Bengal which he visited earlier in the day.
"I want to apologise for my late arrival. I was in Bengal. And these days, the enthusiasm of Bengal is also something different. There was a 12 km long roadshow," he said.
PM Modi said Bihar has led the country for centuries and given personalities who served the country well.
"This is true that whenever Bihar has been prosperous, India has been prosperous. Hence for developed India, it is important for Bihar to attain the same stage of development."
Referring to the Rashtriya Janata Dal government that ruled Bihar for about 14 years between 1990 and 2005, PM Modi said that "one family prospered" and youth had to go out of state to earn their livelihood.
"How lands were grabbed in lieu of jobs. The challenge of outward migration increased during the jungle raj, those who brought jungle raj only cared about their family," he said.
Earlier, PM Modi unveiled multiple development projects worth around Rs 12,800 crore in Bettiah.
Bihar Chief Minister and JD-U leader Nitish Kumar rejoined the BJP-led NDA in January this year after breaking his ties with RJD. The Lok Sabha battle in the state will be fought between NDA and the alliance led by RJD which also includes Congress.
