“If Nitish is someone who is against using force, why did he send the cops to kill the Maoists in the first place? It"s obvious that they"ll retaliate now," he added.
Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav has also asked the Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar that all efforts need to be made to rescue the remaining three abducted cops.
