New Delhi: Condemning the murder of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) leader Brijnath Singh, Chirag Paswan on Saturday said President's rule is the only option left for Bihar, considering its deteriorating law and order situation.
"The grand alliance of the Government of Bihar has been a failure at every step. If the chief minister and the Deputy chief minister are unable to provide a sense of security, then what about the rest of the state? The only option left with us right now is President's rule, because this government is a complete failure at every step," Paswan toldANI.
"Brijnath ji was shot dead within 10-15 km of the chief minister's house. He was shot dead only because he and his family fought elections against Lalu ji in the Vidhan Sabha election. I would definitely want to ask the chief minister of Bihar, who also happens to be the Home Minister ofBihar, if this is not political rivalry, then what is?"he added.
Paswan further stated that he would raise this issue of the murder in the upcoming session of parliament.
Brijnath Singh was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Patna.AK-47 shells were recovered from the spot.
Police are investigating the matter.
