Patna: The RJD on Tuesday castigated Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for being insensitive to the plight of the Muslims and said that he was being `remote controlled` by the Sangh Parivar to ignore the problems of the minority community.
"Kumar proclaims to be a well wisher of the minority
community by wearing skull caps at public functions and nurses
a secular image for himself, but when it comes to apply balm
to the grieving families of the muslim men and women killed
at the hands of the police or the Maoists, both the Chief
Minister and the government has been found wanting," the
Leader of Opposition in the legislative council Gulam Gaus
told reporters.
Even in the latest instance in Pipradih-Kanauhi
village in Jamui district where seven members of minority
community were killed by the Maoists last month, the state
government discriminated among the slain people by giving
compensation to the families of only four of them, Gaus, who
returned from a fact finding tour to the village, said.
