The youth’s high protest against unemployment today welcomed the Bihar Chief Minister at a rally in the Tarapur assembly constituency till the October 30 by-elections.

Although the chief minister accused the opposition parties of engineering the protests, the rival Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) criticized him for “losing his mind” when faced with questions about the job crisis.

Videos of election rallies at the Tarapur assembly constituency in Jamui district show placards with messages from youths showing what happened to the NDA’s promise of 1.9 million jobs before last year’s state elections and asking him to step down as chief minister if he can’t get a job. .

Whenever Hindustani Awam Morcha chief and former chief minister Jitan Ram Manji left the stage and Mr Kumar came to deliver a speech, the youth group started shouting “Down with Nitish Kumar”. Some of them were also heard chanting slogans in support of the RJD’s lantern symbol.

Speaking to the media, some protesters claimed that 19 lakh job promises would be fulfilled and condemned the government for not taking exams for recruitment in state police and Group D jobs.

As the slogan became louder and louder, senior police officers approached the youths and asked them to stop shouting, but to no avail.

At one point, Mr Kumar told police officers not to stop protesters from chanting slogans. “Let them shout, don’t bother. These 15-20 people are jumping and screaming, let them do it,” he said, while asking others in the crowd to “answer” the slogan.

The chief minister further said that the protesters must list and submit their demands to him and he will do his best to resolve them. “I don’t care who sends it. I believe in working,” he said, accusing rival groups of sending protesters to rallies.

In visuals at the venue, police officers were seen collecting pamphlets waved by youths and urging state minister Ashok Chowdhury to stop the protests.

Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly and RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav has attacked the Chief Minister.

“When unemployed youths demanded 19 lakh jobs, Nitish Kumar lost his mind,” he tweeted.

Mr Yadav has claimed that the chief minister does not leave his official residence, travel by road and has no direct contact with the public.

“When he has to speak at an election rally and young people ask him, why is the weak chief minister excited?”

Minister and JD (U) MLA Mewa Lal Chowdhury needed a by-election in Tarapur after he died in Kovid earlier this year. The seat is now facing a three-way contest between the JD (U), the main opposition RJD and the Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Bilas), whose leader Chirag Paswan falls in Tarapur where Jamui is representing the Lok Sabha seat.
