Uday Narayan Chaudhary fires another salvo, but Shyam Rajak develops cold feet
Patna,(BiharTimes): Former Bihar Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary, who is inviting former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha, on Wednesday fired yet another salvo at both the chief minister Nitish Kumar and JD(U)’s new ally, the BJP.
However, this time he is not backed by the party’s national general secretary, Shyam Rajak, who along with him, had a few days back, strongly criticised the Narendra Modi government’s Dalit reservation policy.
Chaudhary flayed Nitish for his recent decision to enforce reservation in government jobs that are outsourced to private agencies.
He said Nitish’s move was just an old cabinet decision which was first passed in 1993 during the reign of Lalu Prasad. It was lying in old files and nobody bothered about it.
Incidentally, Rajak abstained from the Press conference on the plea of health reason.
Chaudhary, however, also alleged that the state government has virtually scrapped the Student Credit Cards scheme, which is part of the chief minister's Seven Resolves.
Under this scheme, the government helps students, who want to pursue higher studies with an education loan of up to Rs four lakh.
Chaudhary has under the banner of Vanchit Varg Morcha (of which he is the convener) has invited former Union finance minister Yashwant Sinha on Friday.
Needless to say Yashwant has recently been extremely critical of the Narendra Modi government’s economic policy.
