BJP on Tuesday echoed views of ally Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ramvilas Paswan that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar acted like ‘lion’ when he was in NDA but turned into a ‘cat’ in the company of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

“Yes, right. This is why we call Nitish Kumar a ‘Bechara Mukhya Mantri’ (helpless CM),” BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi.

Union minister and Lok Janshakti Party chief Paswan on Monday made a scathing attack on the Bihar CM over the law and order situation in the state.

The BJP has, on several occasions, described Prasad as a ‘super chief minister’ who has an ‘over-riding influence in the secular alliance government.’ During his ‘Janata Durbar’ on Tuesday, Sushil, Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council, also slammed the chief minister for the ‘high-handedness’ of ruling party legislators and leaders.

A Dalit man told reporters at Sushil Modi’s house that a rowdy of his village, enjoying patronage of JD(U) MLA from Singheswar Ramesh Rishideo, allegedly raped his wife in November last year.

“Additional Superintendent of Police Rajesh Kumar told us categorically that he can not act because of pressure from JD (U) MLA Ramesh Rishidev who is claiming that Yadav was with him on the night of the incident on November 5, 2015,” the Dalit man said. He left his job in Haryana to stay with his wife after the incident.

The couple hailed from Shivnagar Jamuaha village in Madhepura district.

Another woman, a primary teacher, narrated her case alleging that she was sexually harassed by the head master of the school in Baratpur.

The head master enjoys patronage of a woman education official who claims to be close to Chief Minister, claimed the ‘harassed’ teacher. Despite registering a complaint on December 17 last year, no action has been initiated so far.

Sushil Modi has demanded the state government take action against the perpetrators of crime against women.
