Bihar elections: Tejashwi Yadav targets PM Modi, poses 11 questions

Mahagatbandhan’s chief ministerial candidate and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and posed 11 questions to him.

“I would like to ask Hon’ble Prime Minister the following questions related to Bihar’s betterment and development. As per the report of Niti Aayog under him, Bihar is the worst state in education, health standards and continuous development index,” said Tejashwi.

Following are the questions, shared on social media by the 31-year-old RJD leader just an hour before the Prime Minister began his campaigning. 

“Prime Minister, tell me why the double engine government of Bihar, which is continuously making noise on tap water scheme, spends only 4 % of the total budget on water supply and sanitation? And why does 70 % of that 4 % also get a gift of corruption?
