BJP attacks Nitish government
Meanwhile, the Opposition BJP in Bihar has voiced dissatisfaction with the caste survey conducted by the Nitish Kumar government, stressing that it did not give an idea of the "changed social and economic realities" over the years.
Union Minister Giriraj Singh has criticised the Bihar government for this report. He stated that the report of the Nitish government is spreading confusion among the common people and will escalate hatred among the people. He suggested that instead of this report, Nitish Kumar should present his "report card" to the public. He should inform the public about how many people he and his ally Lalu Prasad Yadav have provided jobs to and how many employment opportunities they have created.
