Patna, Oct 11 (UNI) RJD supremo and Union Railway Minister Lalu Prasad today castigated Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for 'the spiralling crime' in the state and demanded an explanation on the abduction of the children.
Speaking to the newspersons regarding kidnappings in the state, the RJD supremo asked, ''Kahaan hai Aakash, Ankit, Golu?'' The RJD supremo reminded his opponent of the statement of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who had asked about an abducted child saying, ''Mera beta Kislaya kahaan hai?'' (Where is my child Kislaya?) Mr Prasad alleged that the children were being repeatedly kidnapped but the police and the administration remained clueless.
He also alleged that other offences, including rape, murder, attrocities on weaker sections and women, had registered a steep hike under the present regime, as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has failed to contain crime.
The Railway Minister said his party would organise a ''Chetavni rally'' to expose the failures of the Nitish Kumar government and also launch mass movement to ''bid farewell to the Bihar Government.'' Mr Prasad criticised ''colleagues who rose to political prominence during Jai Prakash Narayan's (JP) socialist movement, and were hobnobbing with the communal forces.'' Earlier, the Union Minister and senior RJD leaders paid homage to Jai Prakash Narayan, popularly known as ''JP'', on the occasion of his 105th birth anniversary and pledged to strive and bring the 'have-nots' into the mainstream by following the ideology and path shown by the great socialist leader.
Mr Prasad said naxalite activities could be curbed only by including the rebels in the mainstream and not by use of force.
