Patna: On the fourth day of the Bihar Assembly’s Budget Session, opposition leaders once again created ruckus both inside and outside the Assembly and chanted slogans against the NDA government alleging it was protecting key accused in the Muzaffarpur shelter home scandal involving rape and other abuse of very young girls.

Former Bihar Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Rabri Devi said that despite strong rebuke by the Supreme Court, the Nitish government continued to interfere in the ongoing investigation to protect certain senior NDA ministers and officials.

“This government has tried to engage in interfering with the law and an ongoing investigation. Both Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi should resign from their posts on moral grounds,” Mrs. Devi said.

Continuing her assault on the state government, the RJD leader said that if CBI only cooperated with the ongoing probe, it would find some ‘very big names’ emerge during the investigation.

“Nitish administration is clearly trying to protect the accused in the girls’ shelter home case otherwise why would the Supreme Court had to reprimand the state government? It is only due to the pressure from the opposition that a CBI probe was ordered into the case otherwise it would have been brushed under the carpet like many other cases in this government.” she said.

The former Chief Minister also accused the state administration of abusing the power of CBI and other investigative agencies to settle personal and political scores.

“People of Bihar are fed up with these fake cases and will teach a lesson to the NDA in the coming elections,” Mrs. Devi predicted.
