MOTIHARI: The chairman of the JD(U)’s parliamentary board, Upendra Kushwaha, said on Monday that education and mass awareness were necessary to control Bihar’s population.
As part of a ‘yatra’ that the former Union minister began from Valmikinagar in West Champaran on Saturday, he reached East Champaran on Sunday night and met the locals as well as the JD(U) workers on Monday.
Talking to reporters, Kushwaha said the state government had taken many steps to educate the people in rural areas and improve their health. “We have vowed to strengthen the party at the grassroots level by implementing social justice,” he added.
Kushwaha denied that the JD(U)’s popularity had decreased and claimed, “The BJP may be a big political party, but Nitish Kumar is the biggest leader.”
He added, “The Nitish Kumar-led government has implemented several welfare schemes for the welfare of the Mahadalits, weaker sections, women, girls, children, migrant workers, minorities, and students.”
