Tejashwi said that Nitish Kumar has immense support at the grassroots level.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, while talking to the media in Delhi, said that if the opposition agrees on the name of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in connection with the Prime Ministerial candidature in the 2024 general elections, he will Can emerge as a strong candidate. Tejashwi said that Nitish Kumar has immense support at the grassroots level.

Auspicious sign for grand alliance opposition unity

Tejashwi Yadav termed the Grand Alliance coming to power after the Janata Dal (United), RJD, Congress and other parties came together as an auspicious sign for opposition unity. He said that this indicates that most of the opposition parties understand the big challenge before the country. Tejashwi said that the BJP is constantly trying to ignore regional disparities while talking about cooperative federalism.

The allegation of the return of Jungle Raj is useless

The Deputy Chief Minister also said that BJP's allegation that Jungle Raj will return after the return of the Grand Alliance government is baseless and meaningless. When asked whether Nitish Kumar is best suited to be the prime ministerial candidate for the 2024 elections and can he be the opposition candidate, Tejashwi said, "I leave this question to Nitish ji." I cannot claim to speak on behalf of the entire opposition, however, if considered, Nitish ji can definitely be a strong candidate.

Government should listen to the concerns and voice of the people

He has been a social and political activist for the last 50 years. He participated in JP Jayaprakash and reservation movements. When Tejashwi was asked about the comments he made against Nitish Kumar while he was with the BJP, he said that we had made comments against the previous government as an accountable opposition. All the statements made by me and my party colleagues were to ensure that the government listens to the concerns and voices of the people.

Said this on his promise of one million jobs

Regarding our promise of one million jobs and about this, Tejashwi said that we have started it seriously by first deciding to fill the existing vacancies on priority basis. After that we will have a program which will focus on encouraging employment generation in various sectors. I appeal to the central government, again, to pay special attention to Bihar, because the state has waited too long.
