Patna: If the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) forms government in Bihar, then 10 lakh permanent, government jobs will be approved in the first Cabinet meeting itself, said RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday.

"If RJD gets the opportunity to form a government then in the first Cabinet meeting, with the first signature itself 10 lakh jobs will be given. This is not just a promise, but a strong will... These will be government jobs and permanent ones," Yadav said at a press conference here.

The RJD leader said that the people have already seen through the lies of those who have ruled in the past 15 years, referring to incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

He highlighted that according to the WHO standards, there should be one doctor for every one thousand people and further also spoke about the positions lying vacant, and those which should be created, in the police department in Bihar.

"Bihar has a population of close to 12.5 crores, therefore, Bihar needs 1.25 lakh doctors and then support staff too. The Health Department needs 2.5 lakh staff. The posts of 50 thousand personnel in the police force are lying vacant. This when the police-public ratio is at its minimum in the State. Currently, there are just 77 policemen per one lakh population. In Manipur, a small state, there are over one thousand policemen per lakh population," Tejaswi said.

Asserting that the State is facing a huge crisis of unemployment, the RJD leader said that over 22 lakh people from the State have registered so far on the 'unemployment portals" launched by his party on September 5.(ANI)
