28,942 congnizable offences during past six months : RJD

Written by: Staff

Patna, June 5 (UNI) Launching a scathing attack on the six-month-old Nitish Kumar government, the RJD today resolved not to allow the government to 'harm' interests of the downtrodden.

A large number of top RJD leaders,including state party president Abdul Bari Sidiqqui, former Minister Ram Chandra Purvey, RJD MPs Ram Kripal Yadav and state party secretary general Shyam Rajak, addressed the party workers at local Gandhi Maidan here during the day.

In his address, Mr Rajak, citing official figures, said that the number of cognizable offences recorded during the six month NDA rule was 28,942, while at least 3800 people were killed during the same period. Similary, the figure of kidnapping incidents was as high as 1842.

He said leaders known for delivering inflammatory speeches like Pravin Tagodia and Giriraj Kishore, who were not allowed to enter the state during the rule of former RJD government, were now free to visit the state and whip up communal passions under the NDA rule.

Mr Rajak observed that a ''sharp distinction'' was visible in words and deeds of the Nitish Kumar government. The feudal forces had a dominant presence in day to day affairs of the so called 'sushashan' of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar,'' he claimed.

He alleged that the Chief Minister failed to take any action against the JD (U) MLA Anant Singh, who was better known for his muscle power. ''Foodgrains meant for distribution under the Public Distribution System were found in godowns of Mr Singh and Mr Kumar had promised to take action against him within 24 hours but nothing was visible on the ground,'' he said.
