RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, raking up old wounds, referred to an old case against Nitish Kumar even as he quit his post as Bihar’s Chief Minister yesterday. The case is from the Barh Lok Sabha by-poll in November 1991 when Sitaram Singh was killed in a firing in a booth, the Indian Express reported. The then Janata Dal candidate, Nitish Kumar with his party leaders had allegedly disrupted polling at the booth. This led to a clash among the villagers and, in a firing, 22-year old Singh was killed while four were wounded. While he won against Congress’s Sidheshwar Prasad, a murder case was lodged against Nitish Kumar. Five others were also involved in the case. Nitish Kumar and Dularchand Yadav’s names were dropped from the charge sheet submitted in a civil court in 1993, IE reported. Dilip Singh and Baudhu Yadav who were also involved died by 2008 when Barh’s additional chief judicial magistrate (ACJM) took over.

A witness, Alok Singh, challenged the dropping of Nitish Kumar’s name from the charge sheet. Nitish, however, moved the High Court and got stay on the summons and court proceedings before the Barh court. JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar told IE, “The CM’s name had long been dropped from the charge sheet. Lalu Prasad has been raking up the case in vain.’’

      This Vedic astrology writer had , however , alerted against massive floods and connected serious problems in Gujrat , Rajasthan and other vulnerable States through article “ 2017 – an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. The text of the alert covering near and in August-September 2017 , reads like this : “ near and in August-September times, look to be presenting health hazards or epidemics. Floods and landslides may generate huge worry in Gujrat , Rajasthan and other vulnerable States of India. Plants and crops including food crops could fall short of normal expectations. Huge dangerous super sea storm in coastal areas could likely lash at , among others , Gujrat leaving a distinct mark of devastation on the land”. Going by news reports as on 25 July 2017 , it can be said that the alert has been meaningful.
