PATNA: RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Friday said there was no good governance in Bihar but 'maha jungle raj' which was evident on the ground.

"Bihar mein maha jungle raj chal raha hai, kaha ja raha hai ke sushashan ka raj hai (there is utter lawlessness in Bihar, but it is being said there is good governance)," Lalu Prasad told the media here.

The former Chief Minister said if there was good governance as claimed, why were there murders of businessmen and traders on a regular basis, increase in rape cases, and open sale of liquor in the dry state.

Lalu Prasad was referring to a protest by shopkeepers in Patna against the killing of a shoe trader Jitendra Kumar Gandhi late on Tuesday night, followed by the murder of a son of another businessman in Hajipur in Vaishali district.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal chief said he also supported senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Shatrughan Sinha's statement that notebandi (demonetisation), Goods and Services Tax, lies (jhuthbandi), and hype (hawabandi) had led to big losses to the country and its people.
