‘Selfish interests took over’: PM Modi’s jibe at RJD & Congress in Bihar

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated seven urban infrastructure projects in poll-bound Bihar.

Out of them, four projects are related to water supply, two on sewerage treatment and one on riverfront development.

PM Modi also lauded Bihar government's efforts over issues including girl education.

Without naming anyone, the Prime Minister slammed earlier state govts.

"Bihar used to have tall and visionary leaders.

But an era came when focus shifted from governance.

Selfish interests took over governance.

Real problems of the people were not addressed.

Vote-bank politics suppressed the system," he said.

The inaugural event was held via video conferencing.

The seven urban infrastructure projects worth Rs 541 crore.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Union Minister RS Prasad were present among others.

Assembly polls in Bihar are likely to be held in October-November.
