Patna: Hoping to grab his own fifteen minutes of fame in a political landscape that looks anything but healthy, Ali Anwar, the disgruntled Janata Dal – U leader now solidly in the Sharad Yadav camp, at a press conference in Patna on Thursday accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of unleashing police brutality on the villagers of Nandangaon in Buxar who had attacked Kumar's motorcade during his trip to the village last Friday.

Anwar, who had just returned to Patna after carrying out a 'fact-finding' trip to Nandangaon along with another rebel JD-U leader Arjun Rai, said that it was the Chief Minister who ordered the state police to carry out arrests of 'innocent' villagers by falsely implicating them in last Friday's assault.

"The police engaged in brutally beating up the villagers, including many women, and filled the jails with innocent people – all at the behest of Nitish Kumar," he said.

Accusing the Chief Minister of becoming a 'puppet' of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Anwar then played the 'dalit' and 'minority' cards saying Nitish Kumar, since joining hands with the BJP, had unleashed a reign of terror targeting backwards and minorities just to keep the Sangh Parivar in good humor.

It may be recalled that angry villagers in Nandangaon last Friday had attacked the convoy of the Chief Minister for failing to keep up his promises and for arresting men on false charges of breaking prohibition laws.
