RJD asks Nitish Kumar to revive Bihar's special status demand

Special Status Demand Echoes in Bihar as RJD Says Nitish Kumar Has Forgotten Issue

Apart from RJD, JD (U) itself has cited Andhra Pradesh's example to rekindle Bihar's demand for special category status.

While the NDA's candidate is highlighting the development works done by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the RJD candidate, who is hoping to draw the Extremely Backward Class (EBC) votes to its traditional Muslim-Yadav electoral bank, is relying on Mr. Kumar's "betrayal" of the Grand Alliance, making it his selling point of the campaign. He said that Gangotri of scam and corruption was flowing under the rule of NDA government.

JD (U) general secretary KC Tyagi said, "We agree with a part of what Mr Pavan Verma has tweeted out". The effect of creation of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh is similar to the impact carving out of Jharkhand had on Bihar. "If he doesn't, then it will simply mean his previous protests over the issue was pure "nautanki" (drama)", Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly and senior RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said on Thursday.

"Why Nitish is not asking his boss to accord Special Status to Bihar?"

Beijing vowed to "firmly defend its legitimate rights and interests". "This is very normal", financial analyst Ye Tan said. Some products under consideration are largely produced in constituencies controlled by Trump's Republican Party.

The RJD leader also urged the Bihar chief minister to listen to his "inner voice and take a decision like Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandra Babu Naidu". To scotch rumours that local party leaders were scuttling the chances of Pradeep Singh, Mr. Modi pointed to party MLA Vijay Kumar Mandal and said he too had come with them.

Jha, who blamed the chief minister of not being consistent between his words and deeds, said he is living in the "mortal fear of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah". In the letter Tejashwi had said that neither was the special status given to Bihar given nor the special package. "But, despite this some people aren't satisfied and to them, I will just say that India can only grow in NDA's regime". PM Modi had promised special status to Bihar in March, 2014 at a rally in Muzaffarpur during Lok Sabha elections. "But there appears to be a big difference between the chief ministers of the two states", RJD national spokesman Manoj Jha told reporters here.

The Opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has accused CM Nitish Kumar of "surrendering Bihar's benefits for personal gains".

"Tejashwi, who is now campaigning for the RJD and Congress nominees for the three bypolls here, had been instrumental in allotting one seat - Bhabua Assembly constituency â€" to the Congress for the by-election slated for March 11.
