Patna: LJP president Ramvilas Paswan on Monday, quoted statistics from the website of the police, to dispute Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's claim that rule of law had been established in the state.

Paswan said according to the figures available from the website, the police registered 4,93,110 cases related to cognisable offences between 2006 and 2009 after Nitish came to power.

According to this, the police registered on an average 337 cases per day, Paswan said of which murders were 12,369, kidnapping 10,270, loot and dacoity 9929, rape 4175 while the number of cases related to atrocities on women was rising.

"The figures have exposed the claim of Nitish Kumar government and the chief minister must tender unqualified apology before the people for misleading them," he said.

Paswan also targeted the chief minister on the issue of sharecroppers and said yesterday's Kisan panchayat proved that farmers had lost their faith in the government.
