NCP slams Nitish for 'failing to be tough'

The NCP on Sunday slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for 'failing' to be tough against those indulging in violence here when taking part in slain Ranvir Sena chief Barmeswar Singh's funeral procession yesterday and demanded a CBI enquiry into the murder.

'Nitish has simply failed to perform rajdharma by not cracking down against those who perpetrated violence in Patna yesterday... It appeared that [perpetrators of violence] had licence to do so as police were under orders of the state government not to take stern action against them,' NCP general secretary Tariq Anwar told reporters.

Kumar, he said, went on with his
in Bhagalpur even as Patna bore the brunt of violence of the Ranvir Sena.

He flayed the state government for remaining 'a mute spectator' to the mayhem caused in Patna and Bhojpur by the Ranvir Sena supporters who, he said, attacked both policemen and the general people at will, set afire several vehicles and enforced shutdown along the route of the private militia leader Barmeswar alias Mukhiyaji's funeral procession.

The incidents proved that there was no rule of law in Bihar, he said and claimed that such anarchy was witnessed for the first time in the history of the state during the tenure of a government which boasts of ushering in sushashan [good governance].

The NCP leader said Kumar owed an explanation to the people of Bihar as to under what circumstances he did not order the police to take tough action against the Sena marauders in Patna.
