NEW DELHI:  LJP chief and Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday demanded imposition of President’s Rule in Bihar citing deteriorating law and order situation in the state. Paswan met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought a CBI probe into the killing of opposition leaders in the state. Referring to the result of the Bihar bypoll where an NDA candidate won, Paswan said it was the “defeat of jungle raj”.

“I met the Prime Minister as the leader of the LJP and handed over a memorandum in which our party demanded the imposition of President’s Rule in the state due to breakdown of law and order machinery there,” Paswan said.

He has also sought a CBI probe into the killings of LJP leader Brajnathi Singh and BJP state V-P Visheshwar Ojha. Paswan said these were political killings so no fair probe would be conducted by the state government.

“Jungle raj has returned to the state. The result of the Harlakhi bypoll is a proof that people are fed up of the Nitish Kumar government which is supporting criminals,” he said. In his memorandum, Paswan said after the new government came to power, people of Bihar were living in fear.
