Patna: LJP president Ramvilas Paswan on Monday asked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to clarify his government's stand on the report of the D Bandopadhyay Commission on Land reforms specifically sharecroppers.

"The state government's silence over the Commission's report has created fear and fallacy in the minds of the landless and the landlords ... It has become necessary that the state government clarify its stand on the report with a specific mention of its policy on sharecroppes," Paswan said in a press statement.

He also asked Kumar to make public the reports of Mahadalit Commission and Backwards Commission, besides regularising the services of sweepers appointed on contact.

The state government should also bring out a white paper on the utilisation of funds it received under the multi-sectoral scheme for welfare of minorities in different districts of the state, he said.
