Katihar (Bihar): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said every household in Bihar will get electricity.
“I have decided that I would provide electricity to every household,” he said while addressing an election rally here.
The prime minister said Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had promised electricity to everyone in the state during the last elections, but he failed to live up to his promise.
“He (Nitish Kumar) had said he would not come asking for votes again if he fails to provide electricity to people but he is back again asking for it,” Modi said.
Modi also said the Grand Alliance of the Congress, Janata Dal-United and the Rashtriya Janata Dal does not have any issues to put forward before the people.
“Bihar would touch new heights of development under the NDA rule,” he said.
The polls to the 243-member Bihar assembly started on October 12. The final, fifth round of elections will be held on November 5. The counting of votes is slated for November 8.
