Patna: Former Bihar deputy chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday promised five new airports in the state if INDIA bloc comes to power in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections. "For better connectivity in Bihar, we are going to build 5 new airports in the state in Purnea, Bhagalpur, Muzzafarpur, Gopalganj and Raxaul," he said.

Yadav made this announcement while releasing the party manifesto for the elections. Netizens trolled the leader on his announcement with saying he should instead focus on building bus stands in state.

Here are some social media reactions from netizens that stole the show on the internet. Sanjay Singh, an X user termed this move as a gimmick and said, "Darbhanga mein kitni flights operational hai sir ji? (How many flights are operational from Darbhanga?) What is the use of muzaffarpur airport? Isn't it just political gimmic. Will MUZ airport will be commercial viable?"

"He is neither in central government nor in states government still lying to fool people. Better to prepare for tihad," said another user.

A user asked, "Is the city developed... Will make the airport like the local bus depot?"

"Baap ne railway khaya ye airport," said a user referring to the land-for-job scam involving Lalu Prasad Yadav, the then railway minister of India.
