Tejashwi demands Nitish’s resignation; gives seven days time to send culprits behind bars
New Delhi, Aug 11: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and former deputy chief minister of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav has tried to hit two birds with one stone when he said that who the Bihar government is trying to save. Why is it not being said in the call dial report (CDR) that which Union minister and members of Parliament called up Nitish Kumar to save Brijesh Thakur. He is not only attacking Nitish Kumar but Narendra Modi as well.
Tejashwi demanded resignation of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar by giving him seven days time. The next course of action will be decided once these seven days are over. Former deputy chief minister warned the Nitish Kumar-led government to answer the questions posed by it, else his party will decide the next course of action against the Bihar government and also people in support of him. Tejashwi directly targeted the Bihar chief minister by saying that Nitish Kumar must tell that how many other ministers are involved in the Muzaffarpur shelter house rape case besides him otherwise people will expose who all are involved in it.
The RJD became more aggressive after the Supreme Court of India commented on the Muzaffarpur incidence that it was a state sponsored act. Tejashwi asked, "Nitish Kumar must tell who is running the state?"
The RJD leadrs requested the Supreme Court that the honorable court must ensure proper investigation and questioning of all principal secretaries of the Information and public relations department especially the gentleman who has been the health secretary as well during whose tenure the NGO of Brijesh Thakur was given fund in bounty. All the favorite officers of Nitish Kumar must be questioned to investigate their relations with Brijesh Thakur - the prime accused in the matter.
Tejashwi Yadav said that Manju Verma is not the only link in this matter but there are several more ministers involved in this case and still they are part of the government. Nitish Kumat know who they are. Why the Bihar chief minister is afraid of removing them. If the government does not do that people of Bihar will get them removed.
He urged the Supreme Court to take a Suo Moto cognizance that how only one person's SDR came in public domain and who got it leaked. The person doing this mischief must be punished. This is to recall that only Chandrashekhar Verma's call detail was made public rest of them have been held back.
The former deputy chief minister said that even two months after the Muzaffarpur incidence the alleged accused Brijesh Thakur's name is not in the FIR. He was not given police remand, who is responsible for these things. Nitish Kumar also needs to tell that the official of the health ministry who had blacklisted NGO of Brijesh Thakur, who recommended his transfer. Why this official was punished for speaking truth.
Another RJD leader said that the party is not going to let this issue go till all the accused are behind bars. The party will organized protest and will go to people with all the information that it has regarding this gory incidence.
