In what could be considered a big blow for Bihar CM Nitish, RJD's 'Berozgari Hatao Yatra' led by Tejashwi Yadav has received support from three ruling Janata Dal (United) leaders in Bihar. The three leaders who extended support to the rival party's march are- Kochadhaman Mujahid Alam- JDU MLA from Kishanganj district, Javed Iqbal Ansari- JDU MLC from Banka and Amarnath Gami- JDU MLA from Hayaghat. 

According to Alam, there is "no doubt" that unemployment is a major issue in the state. Extending support to RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, Ansari questioned Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over unemployment and migration issues in the state. Earlier, on the issue of unemployment and Tejashwi's Berozgari Yatra JDU MLA Amarnath Gami had offered an interesting take:

'No govt has worked to address unemployment'

According to Gami, no government in the state has ever worked to address the issue of unemployment. While speaking to the reporters earlier, he had said, "No doubt, there is unemployment in Bihar. If there was no unemployment then people would not have left Bihar to work in other states. No government has ever worked to address this issue. It is not possible to remove unemployment without the Centre's help. If Tejashwi ji is taking out a 'yatra' against unemployment, he should know that the problem of unemployment will not be solved by this. For solving it, a plan should be made and the public should be informed about it."
