Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) spokesperson Manoj Jha, at a press conference in Patna on Sunday, slammed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for remaining silent on the recent attack on party leader Upendra Paswan saying people in Bihar were living under constant fear for their lives but the Chief Minister had no time to address this epidemic.
"RJD legislator Upendra Paswan narrowly survived a deadly attack on him in Begusarai but Nitish Kumar is yet to say anything on this issue. Law and order has collapsed in the state but the Chief Minister continues to ignore it. It is evident that he has surrendered before the Sangh Parivar. He appears weak and his governing style proves it.
Ignoring the fact that the police in Begusarai had already made two arrests in the case, Jha said that people in Bihar were living under constant state of fear and the police was doing nothing to allay their apprehensions.
The RJD leader also took a shot at the Chief Minister asking him to explain how much money Bihar was allocated in the 2018 general budget earlier announced by the Narendra Modi administration.
As reported, the two arrested men in Begusarai were identified as Suraj and Raju, both contractors with criminal background. After people in the area lodged a complaint against them with the legislator, Paswan then ordered removal of them from all pending works thus raising their ire that led to last week's attempt on his life. Two men, including a local teacher, were hit by the flying bullets.
Two country-made pistols, four cartridges and two cell phones were recovered from their possession.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
