PATNA: Union minister and LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan today slammed the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar for the killing of a youth in Gaya by the son of a JD(U) MLC in a road rage incident, saying it was time to impose President's rule in the state.

"This is the perfect time to impose President's rule in Bihar," he told reporters and held Chief Minister Nitish Kumar responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.

Paswan said his son and LJP Parliamentary Board head Chirag Paswan would meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and seek President's rule in Bihar.

The Union Minister of Food and Public Distribution said five days ago a youth, Kishlay, was murdered in Hajipur, his constituency and another was killed in Mahnar recently.

"The killing of the 20-year-old in Gaya by the son of JD(U) MLC Manorama Devi proved the Hindi proverb 'Sainya bhayo kotwal ab daar kahe kaa' (when your own man is the head of a police station what is the need to fear)," he quipped.

Chirag Paswan, Lok Sabha member from Jamui, said the Gaya killing proved that the ruling party leaders were "drunk with power."
