Patna: Facing public ire over the shocking killing of an innocent youth over a minor altercation in Gaya, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav has come out strongly against the allegation that 'Jungle Raj' has returned to the state.
Tejashwi tweeted: “Those who defame Bihar must see National Crime Records Bureau and decides which state tops the crime chart.”
He had earlier said, “Don't other states have crime? What about crimes in BJP ruled states like MP and Jharkhand. Why is it not Jungle Raj?”
Attacking Prime Minister he said, “PM Modi raised Jungle Raj during elections, voters gave him a befitting answer.”
Tejashwi had courted controversy after he equated the Pathankot terror attack with the Gaya road rage incident. “Isn't Pathankot attack bigger than murder in Bihar, why is that not Jungle Raj?” he had said.
Terming the Gaya road rage incident is sad and unfortunate, Yadav said, “We assure family of victim justice will be done and culprits will be punished.”
