PK said, 'For the last 3 decades, Bihar has been ruled by Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar. Lalu ji for the first 15 years and now Nitish Kumar is the Chief Minister of Bihar for the last 15 years. Lalu ji and his supporters believe that social justice reigned in 15 years of rule. The government gave voice to the people who were economically and socially backward. Nitish supporters believe that his government has focused and developed on economic development and other social aspects.
There is some truth in both things, but there is also truth in the fact that even after 30 years of rule of Lalu and Nitish, Bihar is the most backward and poorest state of the country. No one can deny the fact that Bihar lags in most od the development parameters. If we look at the path of 10-15 years, then it is certain that we cannot reach the heights through this path. Bihar needs new thinking and new efforts to come in the category of leading state. It can be debatable as to who can bring the new thoughts and new effort. I believe that the ability to think new and make new efforts is in every person.
'I have spoken to every section of the society in the past. I had discussions with about 150 people. Most of them want new thinking and change to come in Bihar. In the coming 3-4 months, I will interact with about 17,000 people of Bihar. I will travel 3 thousand kilometers starting from Champaran. If most of the people in this yatra agreed to the point of new thinking then we will certainly announce a political party.
