Centre has only “fooled” Bihar over special package: Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav


Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav claimed on Wednesday that the central government had only “duped” Bihar by promising a special package and status. 

He said this to reporters before the Union Budget was tabled. 

“Bihar is a backward state. Several times before, the PM and the centre promised to give Bihar a special package and status. I don’t believe anything of the sort will be done.

They have only deceived us. Let us see what is done for Bihar in the budget.” The deputy chief minister also compared previous budgets to those presented by the BJP-led government now. 

“There is a significant difference between previous budgets and the budget now. During the UPA’s tenure, there was a separate railway budget. The current administration has completely eliminated the railway budget. The average budget is now small and lacks detail. People should be informed clearly about the revenue and expenditure. “People should know where the money is coming from and where it is going,” he said. 

Yadav went on to say that Bihar was waiting to see what the Centre did about the inflation issue.

 Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar expressed his expectations for the Union Budget 2023 a few days ago, saying that efforts should be made to develop a backward state like Bihar.

 “Everyone has put forward their points during the centre’s meeting with the states,” the CM told the media. Efforts should be made to help a backward state like Bihar progress. All types of developments should occur. In this regard, I have high hopes.”
