PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday challenged the BJP, which has been claiming that crime has increased and jungle raj is prevailing in the state for an open debate from any platform.
“It has become a fashion for people to say that there is jungle raj in Bihar and since the time I parted way with BJP, development has taken a backseat. I throw open challenge to people who say so (without naming BJP) for an open debate,” said Nitish.
He also questioned the intention of PM Narendra Modi when he refers to rising crime figure and ‘jungle raj’ in Bihar and refrains from talking about what happened in Gujarat in 2002.
Nitish also warned the people of Bihar to be very cautious while casting their vote in coming election or they will have to heavy pay the price later.
“I am a person who promises only that can be delivered. I never make false promises and later term it to be an election ‘jumla'(idiom),” said Nitish adding “Bihar ke janata ko sochna hai. Wo (BJP) Jhanse mein vote le jaenege.”
He once again called the special package of Rs 1.25 lakh crore a bogus package and reiterated the demand for special category status.
