Former union minister and senior Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) Lok Sabha MP Mohammad Taslimuddin on Saturday launched a tirade against Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the deteriorating law and order in the state, saying that he is not even fit to be a ‘mukhiya’ and therefore should forget about becoming a prime minister.
“There is no law and order in the state. Nitish Kumar is not even fit to be a ‘mukhiya’, forget about being a prime minister. They are falsely claiming that law and order has improved in the state. They have created false facts on crime rate but it reveals through media though,” Taslimuddin told ANI.
“He has looted lot of funds of Bihar. What is he doing he is roaming outside. He should look after Bihar first. I want the RJD-JDU alliance to break today itself if possible, but its Lalu ji’s decision,” he added.
Earlier also, Taslimuddin, a five-term MP who represents Araria in Lok Sabha, had said Kumar has failed to rein in the spate of killings that have taken place in recent past in the state.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been attacking the grand alliance in Bihar after the murder of two journalists, one in Bihar and the other in neighbouring Jharkhand.
Senior reporter of a Hindi-daily ‘Hindustan’, Rajdeo Ranjan, was killed in Bihar’s Siwan district on Friday evening by unknown assailants near the railway station. The journalist was shot from close range in the head and the neck.
In Jharkhand, a journalist was shot dead by unidentified people at Dewaria in Chatra district. A police official said, Akhilesh Pratap Singh, 35 who worked for a news channel, was gunned down near panchayat secretariat of the village on previous Thursday night.
The killing comes days after a brutal road rage case, in which suspended JD (U) MLC Manorama Devi’s son Rocky shot dead a class XII student, Aditya Sachdeva, in Gaya for overtaking his SUV.
