Opposition parties demand all party meeting on crime
Patna, Apr 27 (UNI) The main Opposition party RJD and the CPI today asked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to convene an all party meeting on spurt in unlawful activities.
Expressing their concern over the rise in criminal activities, RJD general secretary and former Bihar Minister Shyam Rajak and state CPI secretary Badri Narain Lal told newspersons here that the "rule of law" did not appear to exist in the state as incidents of murder, loot, kidnapping and dacoity had registered an alarming growth.
They alleged that civil and police authorities were reduced to mute spectators.
The Opposition leaders said the state lacked a government worth the name as even capital town and its adjoining areas were vulnerable to "whims and fancies" of anti-socials. They claimed that 18 people had been killed in the state during the last 48 hours.
