Regarding the question of shortage of supply of fertilisers in the state, he clarified that there was no shortage of fertiliser supply to Bihar. In fact the amount alloted to the state was not even used by it he said.
He maintained the scarcity of fertilisers in the state was the result of the faulty distribution policy of the state government. He also alleged the ruling NDA government under Nitish Kumar is anti-poor which failed on all fronts.
He also added that LJP is different from the other parties as it was not concerned about grabbing power rather wished to bring common people in the mainstream which ultimately will pave the way for overall development of the state.
