Former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi has accused the incumbent Nitish Kumar of posting policemen around the trees at the Bihar chief minister’s official residence at 1, Anne Road in the city, to stop him from plucking fruits.

According to reports, 24 policemen are currently safeguarding 100 litchi, mango and jackfruit trees on the property, which Manjhi continues to occupy.

Meanwhile, Janata Dal (United) spokesperson Niraj Kumar has reportedly dismissed the allegations as a ‘non-issue’.

Earlier, Manjhi had floated a new party, the ‘Hindustan Awaam Morcha’, after being ousted from the JD (U). According to reports, the HAM has been formed to counter the JD (U) ahead of Bihar assembly polls to be held later this year. Manjhi’s supporters are said to be predominantly Mahadalits and members from other backward castes.

      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.

            The Cost & ry to Security of Mango & Lichi is more than the cost of fruits. It is public money & leaders are enjoying till on chair & after removal from chair doing Dalali to earn money. It is a very good business without personal capital investment .
