"PM Modi, BJP bankrupt of ideas": RJD MP Manoj Jha

Patna: In a scathing attack on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, RJD MP Manoj Jha on Sunday said they were 'bankrupt' of ideas.
"Yesterday, he (PM Modi) was saying that we (the alliance) will make the country bankrupt. If you waive off Rs 16 lakh crore of your friends, then there is no scope for bankruptcy, but giving cylinder for Rs 500, and Rs 1 lakh per year to poor women is bankruptcy," he pointed out.
"Where is this bankruptcy? This is called the poverty of ideas. PM Modi and his team are bankrupt of thoughts," he lashed out further.
Earlier on Friday, coming down heavily on Union Minister Amit Shah's statement that "We have had the majority to change the Constitution for the last 10 years," Manoj Jha said, "BJP has multiple ways of changing the constitution."
Meanwhile, the 40 seats in Bihar are undergoing polls in all seven phases. In 2019, BJP-led NDA swept the state by winning 39 out of 40 seats, while Congress won just one seat. RJD, a formidable force in the state, failed to open its account. The counting of votes will be held on June 4.
In Mahagathbandhan (Grand Alliance), the opposition coalition in Bihar, including Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Congress, and Left parties; RJD, its largest constituent, is contesting on 26 out of the state's 40 Lok Sabha seats, while Congress is contesting on nine seats.
As part of the NDA; BJP and JD(U) will contest on 17 and 16 seats respectively. Chirag Paswan's Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) will contest five seats, and Jitan Manjhi's Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) and the Rashtriya Lok Morcha (RLM) will contest one seat each.
