Patna, May 15: The killing of two journalists in 24 hours, one in Bihar and other in its neighbouring state Jharkhand had led to a war of words between the BJP government and the ruling grand alliance government in Bihar.
Nalin Kohli, the BJP spokesperson has questioned Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to answer the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
"Nitish's comeback with Lalu Prasad Yadav was to ensure law and order, but they have failed to handle the situation over the immediate action against his own party MLC, Manorama Devi.
While speaking to OneIndia over BJP's remark on 'comeback of Jungle Raj' in Bihar Shyam Rajak, Food Minister in Bihar said, "BJP should look into their own party as there is more crime in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Jharkhand (BJP-ruled states)."
"We are taking immediate action against crime-related incidents and the BJP is demoralised over the negligence by the citizens of Bihar, that is the reason they are defaming the state's governance by calling it a 'Jungle Raj'."
"One journalist was shot dead in Jharkhand. We are not happy to compare the crime in other states but Nitish government is taking immediate action aganist the crime. Rocky Yadav was arrested for killing Aditya Sachdeva on Saturday, (May 7) for overtaking his car at Bodh road in Gaya."
"What is law and order? It is to take action aganist the crime so, our party is taking actions to curb crime. BJP should answer that how Rocky got licence during their regime in Bihar. I condemned the murder of journalist in Bihar," Rajak concluded.
