Patna: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) state President Pashupati Kumar Paras, at a press conference in Patna on Wednesday, asked for imposition of President's Rule in Bihar saying the state was completely in grip of criminals as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, to fulfill his dream of becoming the Prime Minister of India, had all but abandoned Bihar.

"Law and order has collapsed in Bihar but Nitish Kumar is not concerned about it at all as he is too busy dreaming about becoming the Prime Minister of India," Paras, who is the brother of LJP President and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, said.

The LJP leader, speaking just hours after the murder of party leader Sudesh Paswan and his cousin Sunil Paswan in Dumaria purportedly by Naxals in Gaya, said that since last November, 642 murders had been committed in Bihar along with 1723 kidnapping for ransom, 1428 rapes, 1114 armed robberies, 2762 riots, and 342 cases of loot on roads and highways.

"This is the example of Nitish's good governance in Bihar," Paras said while demanding the imposition of President's Rule in the state.

As reported, Sudesh and Sunil Pandey were gunned down by Naxal ultras in Dumaria as the two campaigned for Panchayat elections in which Sudesh's wife is a candidate.

Police recovered Naxal posters and hand-written notes from the crime scene in which they took responsibility for the crime.
