Bihar has been notorious for jungle raj in the ninties, when RJD chief lalu Prasad Yadav was at the helm of affairs . Some report says that under Majhi's regime, the State is going in that direction again. He has hardly any time left after hitting the headlines with series of recent controversies. Recently the Chief Minister had warned doctors of the state saying that he will cut their hands if they will neglect the poor.
Manjhi- Controversial child
Manjhi has skirted a series of controversies recently. Reportedly some of his statements have not augured well among party leaders. After Patna stampede, he had visited Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) and whimpered about the worst condition of Bihar's one of the premier Hospital.
Report say that earlier he had defended the same officials and then finally out of blue transferred them. Earlier he had said he had to pay a bribe of Rs 5,000 to get his work done when Nitish kumar was at helm of affair. The lists doesn't end here. Manjhi also hit the headline after he alleged that a temple in Madhubani was "washed" after his visit.
