Patna: NCP would unite all other opposition
parties, including RJD, LJP, Congress and Left, to launch a
decisive battle against Nitish Kumar government in Bihar,
party General Secretary Tariq Anwar said on Saturday.
Alleging that Nitish government was a total failure on
all fronts, Anwar said it had become necessary that all the
opposition parties should take up the fight.
"We have so far failed to unitedly highlight the failures
of the state government and also in the protests against the
Forbesganj police firing", the NCP MP said.
Stating that the division of secular votes had led to
Nitish Kumar`s coming power in Bihar for the second time, he
said while the JD(U)-BJP together polled 39 per cent of the
votes, the opposition parties, if their votes are combined
together, secured 61 per cent votes.
Criticising Nitish Kumar for alleged inordinate delay in
the opening of an Aligarh Muslim University centre in Bihar,
Anwar alleged that Kumar was "not not interested in opening
the centre under pressure from his ally, BJP".
He also alleged that Nitish Kumar government had also
failed to implement the National Health Mission and Rajiv
Gandhi Rural Electrification Programme.
"The state government`s performance has been far from
satisfactory compared to other states in India", he claimed.
Reacting to Kumar`s suggestion that PM should be brought
within the Lokpal ambit, Anwar said had Kumar been honest, he
would have brought the office of Chief Minister under the
purview of Lokayukta in Bihar.
