PATNA:In the wake of the "Yuvraj of Jungle Raj" remark by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mahagathbandhan leader Tejashwi Yadav on Thursday said the PM of our country is free to say anything.

"We were expecting him to say something on unemployment, job creation, special package, starvation in Bihar but he has taken a different path to attack me. I don't want to comment on his remarks, " Yadav said.

"The core issue of this election is unemployment, job creation, development and people know it. Despite this they [the NDA] are not talking on real issues. They are busy in personal attacks. This is not an election of Modi, Rahul, Chirag or Nitish but the bottom-line of this election is real issues, " he said further.

Earlier, during the Madhubani rally on Wednesday evening, Yadav said the biggest enemies of the people of Bihar are unemployment and corruption. Bihar has a double-engine government and one of its engines created unemployment and the other was involved in corruption, he claimed.

Referring to the Mithilanchal belt where Madhubani is located, he said: "This place has a huge scope of establishing agriculture-based industries. I want to ask the double-engine government why there is no food processing unit here, " Yadav had said.

On Wednesday PM Narendra Modi addressed three rallies in Bihar where he targeted former CM Lalu Prasad and his family members saying that law and order was pathetic in his regime.
