Beware of fake nationalism Tejashwi

first_imgPatna: RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, who has been in a sulk ever since his party drew a blank in the Lok Sabha elections, has urged voters to be cautious of “issues like Hindus versus Muslims and fake nationalism” and choose a government without being affected by propaganda. The leader of Opposition, whose absence from the recently concluded assembly session in Bihar drew repeated criticisms from the treasury benches, shared his thoughts in a lengthy Facebook post on Thursday. “People must choose a government keeping in mind the issues that affect their daily lives, without being affected by propaganda,” Yadav said in the post titled ‘Dil ki baat’.

He was referring to the BJP-led central government’s ‘Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana’, under which the an income support of Rs 6,000 will be provided every year to small and marginal farmer families having combined land holding or ownership of up to two hectares. The RJD heir apparent also complained about the Nitish Kumar government for its “continuous harping on the situation that prevailed 25-30 years ago”, when the state was ruled by his father Lalu and, successively, by mother Rabri Devi.last_img
