The Congress, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Left parties’ alliance in Bihar, called the Mahagatbandhan, has focused its manifesto on farm laws and jobs. The alliance released its manifesto on Saturday for the state assembly elections slated for late October and November this year.
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said that if they win the polls, the alliance will pass a bill in the assembly itself to scrap the three anti-farm laws cleared by the Centre last month.
Taking a swipe at the NDA and BJP in particular, Surjewala said the BJP was contesting the polls in three alliances, one is with Janata Dal (United) which the people can see, another one is with the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) which people understand, and the third one is with “Owaisi Saheb.”
The Mahagatbandhan’s chief ministerial candidate Tejashwi Yadav said that no team from the Centre has cared to visit the state to assess the flood situation. “It seems that everyone is busy in the race to get the chair,” he said.

The alliance released its list of candidates for all the 243 seats last week.
The Bihar state assembly polls will be held in three phases starting October 28. The results will be declared on November 10.
The BJP is yet to release its manifesto. However, senior party leaders have said that self-reliance and a thrust on improving production and farm output are likely to be the central theme of the Bharatiya Janata party’s vision document for the election- bound Bihar. Empowerment schemes for the socially and economically backward will also get a fillip said persons aware of the details.
