Joining the critical refrain from the BJP in light of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s speech, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar opened an offensive against the Congress on Thursday, saying he saw slim chance of the party bagging another term in the Parliament.

“The Congress has been in power for a long time. Despite their long tenure, they have not been able to provide potable water for all. People are suffering from hunger. Neither corruption nor inflation has been under control. Unemployment and inequality are on the rise. In such a situation, the claim that the Congress will find a solution to these problems is hollow,” Mr. Kumar said.

Stop criticizing others....these same problems your government has not
been able to eradicate being in power for last 8 yrs. Whatever data
has been broadcast boasting the progress of bihar has got no
resemblance with the ground level reality. Apart from a bit
improvement in law and order situation , health services ,
connectivity ( road constructions) and primary education bihar has not
witnessed any considerable positive shift. Migration for jobs and
higher education is continued with the same pace. Your party can not be
categorized as party with clear image..

Mr. Nitish has a very valid point that the Congress has been in power for long and neither inflation not corruption is addressed. Well, the same is true for him as well that he has been in power for long and when it comes to controlling corruption, he hasn't done much. Recently, videos were circulated about how board exams are being conducted in Bihar and it was an eyesore for any educated person to see. Also, Mr. Nitish's party was part of the political establishment that scuttled the Lokpal bill in the name of federalism.

Nitish Kumar is far better choice as PM than anyone else in the current
Indian politics. If he can change Bihar, why not India? Modi will make
India gloomy for sure! It's a high possibility that Nitish can form the
next government with the support of others, seats in brackets, JJ (20),
Mamta (30), TDP (20); Nitish (45); SP (20); Communists (60); Shiv Sena
(10) and smaller parties, if required BJP!
