"Does RJD have a right to observe 'Garib Adhikar Diwas', the party has sucked the blood of the poor! Persecuted the poor! Due to the misrule of RJD in Bihar, there has been a mass migration of the poor from state. Both RJD and Congress have not done a single work for the poor in the state," he said while speaking to ANI.
"How can such people raise questions? Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the poor section of the country is ready to take the nation forward," he added.
"BJP's virtual rally today is not a political rally. The purpose of this rally is to inform the people of Bihar and country about the work done by the Modi 2.0 government, in one year. For instance, how government is handling the situation of pandemic. It is our sole duty to inform people about that," the Union Minister said.
