Ahead of the Bihar Assembly election, Congress president Sonia Gandhi today made a fervent appeal to voters to herald change in the state and build a 'new Bihar', alleging that the JDU-BJP government there has deviated from its path and was high on power and ego.
In a four-minute video ahead of the first phase of voting tomorrow, she said the present dispensation led by Nitish Kumar is neither saying good nor doing good and labourers are helpless, farmers are upset and youth disappointed with it.
"Drunk on power and arrogance, the government in Bihar has deviated from its path. Their words and deeds are suspect. The labourers are helpless, the farmers are upset and the youth are disappointed. People are bearing the brunt of the fragile state of the economy."
