Speaking on the occasion, Yadav said, “In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he will sip a cup of tea at Motihari's sugar mill. But you can see that in Bihar, sugar mills, jute mills, paper mills and rice mills are shut. No food processing units have been established.”
He further said that as many as 60 scams took place in this regime and crime has increased. “Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party stabbed Bihar in the back,” said Yadav.The Election Commission of India has announced a three-phase election in Bihar in October-November.
