NEW DELHI: Expressing disappointment over the increase in crime in Bihar, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that it was evident that ‘jungle raj’ would return in the state post the victory of the grand alliance in the state assembly polls.
BJP leader Rajeev Pratap Rudy lashed out at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav for failing to bring the situation under control.
“It would not be fair to say that people are paying what they deserve, but we all knew that this is going to happen in Bihar, despite them (Lalu-Nitish) getting victorious. The fact is BJP had promised good governance, people rejected us, they accepted Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar as their leaders,” Rudy told ANI.
“I don’t know whether the people of Bihar deserved this. The question may be best posed to Nitish Kumar and much better from Lalu Prasad Yadav. Was this all what is happening in Bihar is a mandate that they had got for?” he asked.
The BJP leader also highlighted the recent incidents in Bihar to prove his assertion.
“An engineer’s body was found in Vaishali yesterday, two engineers were butchered in Darbhanga, prior to that a business man was shot in Muzzfarnagar, a Sarpanch was killed in my parliamentary constituency in broad day light,” he said.
Nitish Kumar-led government has come under sharp criticism from the opposition parties post the murder of two engineers in Bihar's Darbhanga district.
