Jaitleys ‘greatest challenge’ lies in Bihar and “Punjabi-Bihar is the best-placed to make real progress in the coming five years”.
In a wide-ranging address, the Chief Minister said the “Poverty Pact”, which was signed by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government in January, would “help people get back on their feet”.
It would provide them with “enough of their basic needs”, he said, adding that the scheme would be rolled out over four years.
He said he would also be working to make “more financial inclusion and the provision of financial help to people” available for all families.
The BJP has already initiated an ambitious plan to create jobs for the poor by providing subsidies and jobs to those who have “made sacrifices to earn their livelihood”.
He also said the government will “take on” corruption in order to create “more jobs, more income and more employment”.
He promised to take action against the “black money hoard” in the country, promising to “end the corruption that thrives in this country”.
