Bihar Polls: Nitish Announces Govt Jobs To Kin Of
Ahead of Bihar Assembly polls, CM Nitish Kumar has announced government jobs to kin of any SC/ST person killed in the State, triggering widespread criticism from the Opposition which called the move an “election manoeuvre”.

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav asked why only kin of SC-ST community will be given government jobs?

"Since polls are nearing, Nitish Kumar has announced govt jobs to kin of SC/ST person killed in Bihar. Why shouldn't jobs to given to kin of people of OBC or general category who are killed? This is like encouraging the murder of SC/ST people," news agency ANI quoted Tejashwi as saying.

Why should their children not get government jobs when OBC and general class people are killed? With this decision, CM is working to promote the killing of people belonging to SC-ST community in the state. Tejashwi Yadav said that for the development of Bihar, there is a need to work above the caste and if the RJD comes to power then everyone will get employment, not any particular caste.

"Bihar's unemployment rate is around 46 per cent, one of the highest in India. Around 4.5 lakh posts are vacant in different departments of state govt. If given a chance, our government will fill all the vacant posts & create new vacancies in proportion to population," Tejashwi said.

Tejashwi Yadav also said that the maximum migration for employment takes place from Bihar and more than 52 percent people live in property in the State.

Tejashwi Yadav has released a website ( and toll free number (933 430 2020) to prepare a database of the total number of unemployed persons in Bihar.
