Gaya: RJD leader Tejashwi Prasad slammed chief minister Nitish Kumar, saying his conscience had slipped into coma as he set off on an NDA bhagao, beti bachao (Drive away NDA, save the girl child) cycle march.
“There is rakshas (demon) raj in Bihar,” Tejashwi said, blaming the chief minister for the deteriorating law and order condition in the state. “Ravan is looting the dignity of girls and women in broad daylight. Sita maiya is being kidnapped by Ravan and Duryodhana is doing cheer haran (disrobing) of Draupadi.”
Citing the Muzaffarpur Balika Griha shelter home case, where at least 34 girls were raped (the police raised the figure from 29 to 34 on Saturday), Tejashwi said many BJP and JDU leaders would end up in jail were it properly probed. “If all allegations around orphanages and shelter homes are thoroughly probed, half the JDU and BJP leaders will be politically finished. Every Bihari knows it,” Tejashwi said.
Following protests over the Muzaffarpur shelter home case, Nitish ordered a CBI probe. The Opposition has now made it a major issue after allegations were levelled against social welfare minister Manju Verma’s husband, that he used to frequent the home.
While riding a bicycle with RJD MLAs, Tejashwi said Nitish’s antaratma (conscience) has slipped into coma and it would wake up only when his chair is in danger. “He won’t rise to safeguard the interests of Biharis or women from rapists,” Tejashwi said. “Bihar’s women are in no mood to forgive Paltu Chacha (turncoat uncle) for creating such an unsafe environment,” Tejashwi said while asking “chacha” to bow out of politics with whatever little honour he has left.
Tejashwi slammed Nitish the moment he reached Mahabodhi Temple from where he set off on his journey. He went to the temple in an e rikshaw.
When he set off on a cycle, his supporters raised slogans against Nitish.
