Patna: The RJD today pooh poohed the NDA government's claim about an improvement in law and order situation in Bihar and said 90 per cent of the districts were in the grip of the Maoist scourge.

"The Naxals indulged in violence in four districts yesterday only and as many as 35 out of 38 districts of the state are seriously affected," RJD spokesman Shakeel Ahmed Khan told reporters here.

The spate in the Naxal violence across the state has taken away the gloss from the NDA government's claim of an improvement in law and order situation, he said and questioned the state government's commitment to tackle the menace.

"The state government simply does not have a will or a policy to tackle the Naxalite activities," Khan alleged.

On Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi's statement yesterday reminding RJD supremo Lalu Prasad of his remarks 'bhura baal saaf karo' (a reference for marginalization of the upper castes), the RJD leader said that Prasad had never made such a comment.

"Let Modi prove the alleged utterances being attributed to the RJD chief," Khan said, adding the fact remained his party stood for development and welfare of all communities.

The RJD-LJP combine has even proposed 10 per cent job quota for the upper castes if it returns to power during the forthcoming assembly polls, the RJD spokesman said.
