The grand alliance partners in Bihar – the Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Left parties – on Saturday released their manifesto for the state assembly elections slated for late October and November this year with a focus on the farm laws and jobs.
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said that if they win the polls, under the leadership of the RJD’s Tejashwi Yadav, the alliance will pass a bill in the first Vidhan Sabha session itself to scrap the three anti-farm laws cleared by the Centre last month.
Taking a dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party, Surjewala said that the BJP was contesting the polls in three alliances, one is with Janata Dal (United) which the people can see, another one is with the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) which people understand, and the third one is with “Owaisi Saheb.”
Earlier this week, the alliance partners had released a list of candidates who were contesting across 243 seats of the Bihar assembly, which will be held in three phases from October 28. The results will be declared on November 10.
