Patna: Uncomfortable with the restoration
of friendly relation between BJP and JD(U) ahead of the state
assembly elections, LJP President, Ram Vilas Paswan today said
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had surrendered to the RSS for
"We stand vindicated as we have termed Kumar`s act on
the ad row as nothing but a high drama... after cancelling the
dinner for BJP leaders and subsequently returning flood relief
money to Gujarat, he has finally surrendered to his old ally
RSS for political gain," Paswan told reporters.
Kumar met senior BJP and RSS leaders yesterday and
buried their "drama of difference". It was a glaring example
of politics of opportunism for clinging to power, he said.
Referring to Kumar`s claim to have established rule of
law and good governance, Paswan said it was an attempt to fool
the people as he was inducting people of criminal antecedents
into the party.
He said that the number of cognizable offences in Bihar
were 1,53,525 including 3,152 murder chargers during 2009-10.
He said though Kumar claimed that over 49,000 people
were convicted during the past over 55 months, the facts
remained that 29,938 persons were lodged in various jails and
out of which 21,937 people were undergoing sentences. Kumar
should clarify the status of the rest.
He also alleged the state government had failed to
construct 12 lakh houses under the Indira Awas Yojana despite
allotment of fund by the Centre and its performance in
implementation of MNREGA and Prime Minister Sadak Rojgar
Yojana was very poor.
