Patna: Taking a jibe at RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that if Tejashwi comes to power he will employ 10 lakh criminals and buy firearms increasing crime rate in the state.
Fadnavis said that Tejashwi will buy 10 lakh country-made firearms and distribute them among his supporters and promote abductions, looting and robberies in the state.
Addressing a town hall meeting of BJP, Fadnavis said, “Yesterday, I heard that Tejashwi Yadav will give jobs to 10 lakh people in the first cabinet. I get to know to whom they will give jobs. They will give the order for 10 lakh country-made pistols and Bihar will again see kidnappings and looting. Yadav will distribute those pistols among his supporters. This is the job, he was talking about. He will give jobs to 10 lakh kidnappers, looters and murderers.”

Targeting RJD, Fadnavis said,”We will see the same kind of Bihar that was there under Lalu Yadav`s rule in which girls could not go outside in the evening, no one was allowed to by new car. We have seen a Bihar which had no electricity, water and roads. This NDA government has provided all the basic facilities in all villages, this is the change government brought in in its tenure.”
