New Delhi, March 18: Taking a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not disclosing its chief ministerial face for Uttar Pradesh, the Congress on Saturday taunted the saffron party for indulging in ‘band baaja‘ politics.

Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar said BJP was quick in forming governments in the state of Goa and Manipur where it ended up second in a split mandate.

“They formed the governments in those states where they ended up second without any delay. It is strange that they have yet not been able to select their Chief Minister for Uttar Pradesh,” he said.

Meanwhile, Babbar refused to comment on the candidature of Manoj Sinha for the coveted post and said that he would not like to comment in this regard as it is the saffron party’s internal matter.

So far Sinha has also ruled out himself of the race for the throne of Lucknow, while the media reports have confirmed him the as the BJP’s pick for UP CM.

Meanwhile, the tussle for the chair of power has escalated to levels of demonstrations in favour of the names of contention – UP BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath and Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh – outside the BJP office in Lucknow.

Tejashwi Yadav

Patna, April 24: Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday slammed NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant’s statement blaming the state for India’s backwardness, saying the remark has exposed the mindset of “babus” in the Modi-led government.

“Bihar and Bihari’s pay equal taxes, contribute equally or more in govrnance and nation building. Bihar gave 33 MPs to NDA, seven Union Ministers from Bihar, both State and Centre governments are of same party and alliance. But still these Babus say Bihar is backward…” the former Deputy Chief Minister tweeted.

Tejashwi Yadav, who is the younger son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, said that if Bihar was backward especially on social indicators as claimed by then NITI Aayog, then Prime Minister Narendra Modi should grant a special category status to the state for its development.

“Modi has failed to grant special category status or special packages promised by him. Four years have passed, but nothing has happened so far, except ‘jumlas’ (hollow words),” he said.

Tejaswi Yadav said the people of Bihar had been betrayed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government.

While delivering the first Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan Memorial Lecture in Jamia Millia Islamia University, Kant said on Monday: “Eastern part of India particularly states like Bihar, UP, Chattisgarh, MP, and Rajasthan are keeping India backward especially on social indicators. While we have improved on ease of doing business, we have remained backward on human development index.”

Kant further said that India was still 131 out of 188 countries in the Human Development Index (HDI).
