New Delhi: Defence Minister and BJP leader Rajnath Singh on Wednesday (October 21) attacked the Mahagathbandhan of RJD and Congress for Bihar Assembly Polls while addressing a public rally in Kahalgaon.
The Defence Minister said, “Laalten (RJD symbol) phoot gayi hai aur tel beh gayi hai, ab na panjaa (Congress symbol) ka chali aur na unka koi khel chali (the lantern is broken and its oil has leaked out, and neither the hand will work nor its any trick).
Lauding the central government initiative under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, Rajnath Singh said that around 25 lakh people in the state are receiving benefits under this scheme, adding “There will come a time when everyone in Bihar will receive the healthcare benefits from the scheme.”
