Patna: Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Prasad Yadav along with senior leaders of his party, the RJD, on Wednesday released an ” Aarop Patra” (charge sheet) against the Nitish Kumar government.
The charge sheet was released as a 72-page booklet. The cover has a cartoon showing Nitish tied up to a chair with a rope of lotus which deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi holding the rope. The caption says: ” Kursi ke pyare – Bihar ke hatyare” (lust for chair – murderer of Bihar). In the background people are drowning and the JDU’s symbol, the arrow, is piercing the state map.
Releasing the booklet, Tejashwi declared that Nitish’s government has failed to deliver anything on ground and is taking orders from the RSS.
“The government in Bihar is not run by Nitish; rather, it is run by the RSS from Nagpur,” Lalu Prasad’s younger son alleged. “He has surrendered himself in front of the RSS and the BJP. Lakhs of swords were purchased in Bihar during Ram Navami; was Nitish ji not aware? It proves that for the sake of remaining in power, he does not mind communal violence in the state.”
He also attacked Nitish’s confidant RCP Singh, declaring that the initials stand for Reverse Commission Privilege tax, and accused the and Rajya Sabha member of extorting money.
Tejashwi also said that the recent Union budget has made it clear that Bihar will never get special category status. Tejashwi claimed that Nitish’s seven resolves programme has totally collapsed.
“Bihar Vikas Mission was formed to implement things under the seven resolves but let me tell you that not a single meeting of the Mission has take place since it has formed. The ‘double engine’ government in Bihar has collapsed and the only thing they have achieved is increase in corruption,” Tejashwi said.
The “charge sheet” deals with almost every government department. The first chapter of the book, which is in Hindi, is titled Nitish Sarkar Mein Loktantra Ki Hatya (The murder of democracy under the Nitish government). The book lists at least 18 scams, and accuses Nitish of making excuse after excuse to change partners – from the Janata Party to the BJP to the RJD and back to the BJP.
In response, JDU spokesperson and MLC Neeraj Kumar asked Tejashwi to come out with the report card of the RJD’s 15-year rule instead.
