The grand alliance in the state of Bihar has been tightening its strategy and gearing up in full-swing ahead of the upcoming assembly elections. It is in this context that the parties composing the grand alliance- Congress, RJD, CPI(ML), CPI(M) and CPI collectively released a manifesto for the upcoming assembly elections. One of the main things that the agenda of the grand alliance focuses on is the scrapping of the recently passed farm laws and a renewed emphasis on the crisis of unemployment in the state of Bihar. The General Secretary of the Congress Randeep Singh Surjewala went ahead and said that the very first thing that the grand alliance would do is to pass a bill that can do away with the farm laws. He said,“Can PM Modi and Nitish Kumar tell us that if all mantis are destroyed, then how the farmers will get the MSP?He also said, “ This election is the election of the new path and the new sky versus the Hindu-Muslim, this election is the election of the new-age versus the experience of failure, this election is the election of self-self-reliance and progress versus division and hate. This election is the election of a new direction versus destruction.”
