Tejashwi Yadav, who frequently accuses the Nitish Kumar-led NDA government of being incompetent and points out the failure of law and order in the state, came out and defended Singh over his outburst against crimes.

He took to Twitter and wrote, "In Bihar, Giriraj Singh, the union minister of Nitish Kumar’s constituent party, is telling the truth about the collapsed law and order system and effect of prohibition. The law and order in Bihar are completely over. The demon kingdom has been established. Power-protected criminals kept wrecking havoc. On average, there are 100 murders taking place in Bihar”.

In 2019, a total 2, 49,205 cognizable offences including 2910 murders and 1375 rape cases were registered in Bihar.
