Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Monday exhorted voters to bring him back to power so that the development initiatives taken by his government in the past 15 years could be continued.
At a rally in Sakra assembly segment, Muzaffarpur, to canvass for party’s nominee Ashok Kumar Choudhary, the JD(U) leader also pointed at Leader of the Opposition, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav , saying some try to get publicity by attacking him. “Some leaders get publicity and eyeballs by talking against me. Let them do it . I am not interested in any publicity. I have worked for Bihar and will continue to do so, if given another chance,” he said. He also targeted the RJD obliquely by accusing it of promoting nepotism during its stint in power.
“For some , their family, sons ,daughters are all that matters…For me, the entire state and people are my family and I keep working for their development,” he said.
