Patna: The RJD will take out a cycle march against the Nitish Kumar government raising the issue of women’s safety and increase in incidents of crime in Bihar.
The cycle march will be launched from Gaya’s Gandhi Maidan on July 28 under the leadership of Tejashwi Prasad Yadav. The three-day cycle march will end in Patna on July 30 and during his journey, he will address several public meetings as well.
“Women and girls are not safe in Bihar, not even Nalanda, the home town of chief minister Nitish Kumar. Everyday, incidents of rape of minors and girls are reported,” Tejashwi said, while interacting with the media on the Assembly premises on the first day of the monsoon session of the Bihar legislature.
“Law and order has completely collapsed and murder is on the surge in Bihar. But our chief minister is not bothered. So I have decided to take out the cycle march from Gaya’s Gandhi Maidan on July 28.”
Tejashwi will ride a cycle along with his MLAs and reach Patna on July 20. The motive behind doing the march on a cycle is to send the message to the people of Bihar that nothing is well in Bihar under the leadership of Nitish Kumar.
The young RJD leader will also address public meetings at Bela in Gaya and Mukdumpur in Jehanabad on way to the state capital. This is first phase of his cycle yatra in which most RJD leaders will take part, including his elder brother, Tej Pratap Yadav.
Tejashwi added: “Law and order is on the verge of collapse in Bihar but the government is only bothered about savings its chair and the numbers game. Nitish ji gave BJP a month’s ultimatum to finalise the seats for the Lok Sabha before the general election. Why cannot he give the ultimatum to the police and administration to stop crime in a month. He is not bothered about Bihar, he is just bothered about his chair of the CM.”
He accused Nitish of entering into the government through chor darwaja (back door) and work related to the betterment of people is not the agenda except. Tejashwi asked Nitish to name any single programme and policy started or implemented by the double-engine government.
Once again, Tejashwi accused Rajya Sabha member RCP Singh of collecting tax from bureaucrats and those who did not pay RCP tax, faced serious consequences.
