Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Kumar Modi, holding his weekly press conference at his Polo Road residence in Patna on Tuesday, accused the state government of abandoning all road or bridge-related projects in Bihar while saying the Road Construction Minister was utterly inexperienced in dealing with such a huge department.

"For the last three years there had been no new Road Over-Bridge (R.O.B.) work started in Bihar. This is not just rhetoric but is proven by facts. The truth of the matter is, our Road Construction Minister and Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav is too green to deal with such a large department. His inexperience is coupled by the fact that his advisors are also keeping him in dark by giving him bad advices," Modi said.

The former Deputy Chief Minister, accusing the Nitish government of putting development of Bihar on the back burner since coming back into power with the help of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Congress.

"The Chief Administrative Officer of the Railways sent letters to the Chief Secretary and the Secretary of the Road Construction Department on September 15 and September 23 respectively to seek explanation about zero progress in the 23 proposed R. O. B. across the state. However, the government is yet to reply to those two letters," he said.

Continuing his assault on the Grand Alliance government, the BJP leader said that since Nitish Kumar broke ties with the BJP nearly three years ago, the Chief Minister himself kept the Road Construction Department for a year. Later, he handed over the department to his party leader and close aide Lallan Singh. While Singh managed the department for another year, it was once again handed over to none other than Lalu's son Tejaswi Yadav who, Modi said, had zero experience in running any department. "As a result, all the road over-bridge projects have come to a standstill in Bihar," he said.
