Taking a jibe at his predecessor and Hindustani Awam Morcha leader Jitan Ram Manjhi over his allegations that the state government had deployed policemen around trees at his official 1, Anne Road, residence in the city to stop him from plucking fruits, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday said that he would buy mangoes for those least interested about serving the people.

“I don’t have knowledge about all this. I am not aware of such a frivolous issue. Some people develop affection for a few things within a short span of time. We are more concerned about the people, and those concerned about the mangoes should be given the fruit in ample numbers. What’s the problem in that?” he asked.

According to reports, 24 policemen are currently safeguarding 100 litchi, mango and jackfruit trees on the property, which Manjhi continues to occupy despite not being the chief minister.

Jitan Ram Manjhi had refused to vacate the official chief minister’s residence after demitting office in February, claiming that he had not been granted an alternative accommodation.

As a result of which, incumbent Nitish Kumar works from 7, Circular House, which was allotted to him in his capacity as former chief minister.

Jitan Ram Manjhi had after being ousted from the JD (U) floated the ‘Hindustani Awam Morcha’.

The Hindustani Awam Morcha has been formed to counter the JD (U) ahead of Bihar Assembly polls to be held later this year.

    This fight between Nitish and Manjhi has crossed all limits of corrupt and worst governance in Bihar. The fight for mango between Manjhi and Nitish is very shameful and disgusting. This speaks about insincerity and dishonesty of these corrupt leaders towards people. Nitish is so desperate that he wants alliance with tainted and corrupt Laloo who is convicted in several thousands Fodder scam when earlier Nitish was propagating Laloo's jungle raj but he now sacrificed his past principle and desperate for capturing power by any illegal means. This will be suicidal for people of state who are badly suffering due to worst and corrupt governance in last 25 years provided by Laloo and Nitish resulted in acute poverty and backwardness all over Bihar and people have to run to pillar to post to other states for employment and facing all types of humiliation to earn livelihood. This is misdeed of both leaders. The people of state should oust both parties i.e RJD and JD(U) from Bihar for better future, good and honest governance by voting to national parties only since regional and smaller parties are one man show working for aming wealth for its leader and these parties have no democracy since it is run totally on whims and wishes of leaders like Laloo, Nitish and Ramvilas Paswan.
