Mid-day meal tragedy: Nitish Kumar smells conspiracy

Patna: Smelling a conspiracy behind the midday meal tragedy in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has alleged that BJP and RJD had a "secret understanding" to derive political mileage from the incident.

"The Forensic Science Laboratory, which highlights the presence of pesticide in the midday meal, has confirmed our apprehensions about a conspiracy behind the tragedy at a school in Saran last week", he told a meeting of party MPs, MLAs and office-bearers on Monday as part of Mission 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

The Chief Minister charged "an understanding between BJP and RJD was very much visible both after Bodh Gaya blasts and Chapra midday meal tragedy" as the two parties had called bandhs on the same after the two incidents, state JD(U) spokesman Rajeev Ranjan quoted him as saying.

"RJD and BJP had called bandh together on both the occasions and this confirms the secret understanding between them", Kumar said.

This was the first time that Kumar had spoken on the midday meal tragedy which claimed 23 lives.

He said he is apprehending that more such incidents will take place as part of the opposition's efforts to destabilize his government and asked the partymen to be prepared for it.

He alleged BJP was upset over losing power in Bihar the breakup of its coalition with JD(U) and the saffron party, along with RJD, "is busy fomenting instability against our government".

"They are testing my patience but I will not move away from the chosen path", Kumar said, adding "Bihar's mandate was for development and we shall continue to move ahead along that path",

Without naming the Lalu Prasad-led party, Bihar education minister P K Shahi hinted at the role of RJD in the Chapra incident, saying "the husband of the school principal is an active member of the party (RJD)".

Didn`t know that Nitish can talk like a goon. He is simply shying away from his responsibilities as CM and blaming opposition for bad governance. Hope people of Bihar boot him out.

Nitish Must resign. Why he is making allegations on opposition. He did not even bother to visit victims. I guess because those kids where not Muslim and if he visits he will become non secular.

You must be considerate.Afterall he had such a bad fracture on the little finger on his foot that doctors even prohibited him to talk.With great difficulty he could instruct the concerned to bury the dead children in the school compound itself.Of course this did not stop him from receiving foreign guests or celebrating his sons birthday.What a great tragic coincidence.
