‘Don’t Lecture Nitish Kumar,’ Says His Party on Lalu Yadav’s Criticism

Patna: Weeks after their victory hug in Bihar, the bonhomie seems to have soured between rivals-turned-allies Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav.

The recent killings of three engineers has led to a war of words that contrasts sharply with the unity the two leaders projected during the November poll campaign, against the BJP’s charges of “jungle raj” or lawlessness in Bihar.

On Tuesday, Lalu Yadav said that the Nitish Kumar government must be “more vigilant” on law and order. “If anyone receives any extortion call then please call me and I will ensure speedy action,” said the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief.

A senior leader of his party, Raghubansh Prasad Singh, yesterday went further and said “Nitish Kumar, who is sitting on the driver’s seat of the government, should initiate stern measures to check the further slide.”

Nitish Kumar has been silent till now but his party has reacted sharply.

“Nitish Kumar does not need any lecture from anyone. His track record is known,” said Janata Dal United spokesperson Sanjay Kumar Singh.

Exactly a year ago, Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav’s joint appearance at a rally signaled their reunion after 20 years of bitter political enmity. The two leaders set aside deep differences to take on a common enemy, the BJP, in the assembly polls.

After their sensational victory, Lalu Yadav stayed out of the government but his two sons Tejaswi and Tej Pratap, both debutants, took two of the most important spots in the Nitish Kumar cabinet.

The coalition faces its biggest challenge after the murder of the engineers and a businessman recently. The BJP has held up the incidents as an example of the return of “jungle raj”.

A senior Janata Dal United leader, Shyam Rajak, said it was Nitish Kumar who had pulled Bihar out of perceived lawlessness. The period from 1990 to 2005, when Lalu Yadav’s party was in power, is often described by the opposition as the most lawless period in the state in recent times.

  1. Bihar is back with its favourite profession, loot, murder, ransom and taking the society to medieval era. Credit must go to the people of Bihar, popularly known as “”Biharis”” in other states who rejuvenated almost dead Lallu.

    Rise of an empire which they were eagerly waiting for so many years.

      In the Jammu and Kashmir, hoisting of ISIS Flag is a daily affair! Even on 1st January 2016 also, the ISIS Flag was fluttering there. Stop talking about Biharis, talk about RSS! Talk about Jumla Modi!

  2. Mulla B.N Pai….. yes we need to blame RSS for everything even today your mulla brigade attack indian Air force that also we need to blame RSS

    • deepak shetty says – “Mulla B.N Pai….. yes we need to blame RSS for everything even today your mulla brigade attack indian Air force that also we need to blame RSS”

      Why did Mukri Modi ‘GATE CRASHED’ to the kitchen of the the mother of Nawaz Sharif and did the “Chai pe Charcha”? Why the attack took place within a week of their “Chai pe Charcha”?

      Unless Pakistan attacks, the RSS can no more hold Hindus in their net, who are betrayed by the BJP forming government at Kashmir, joining hands with the terrorists and separatists there!

      RSS can form government and yet permit cow slaughter in places like Goa and yet raise the bogy of “Go Mataa” – the Holy Cow.

      RSS Advani could go to the Mausoleum of Mohammed Ali Jinnah and prostrate before his tomb and praise him as the most ardent secular leader in the world, and accuse Congress and Nehru of partitioning India!

      RSS IS HYPOCRITE TO THE CORE!
