PATNA: A delegation of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders today met Bihar governor Ram Nath Kovind and handed him over a five-page memorandum, seeking to apprise the Centre of the alarming law and order situation prevailing in the state.
The delegation was led by Leader of Opposition in Bihar assembly Prem Kumar.
The delegation voiced serious concern over the prevailing law and order situation in the state and alleging people across the state had been living in a state of terror.
“A complete terror has gripped Bihar after a spate of crime reported in the past one month. Common men, teachers, students, businessmen, doctors and contractors all are living in a state of panic,” said the memorandum submitted to the Governor.
The five-page memorandum also submitted a list of criminal incidents which took place in the state in the past few months. It alleged the ruling party lawmakers themselves were involved in crime with cases registered against as many as 13 legislators of the ruling alliance.
Leader of Opposition Kumar accused chief minister Nitish Kumar of doing little to restore law and order situation in the state.
“The government is just least worried about the masses as they have been left at the mercy of God. He (CM) holds no moral rights to stay in office. He should resign,” Kumar told the media.
The other members in the delegation include Nand Kishore Yadav, former leader of opposition, Mangal Pandey, state party president, Arun Kumar Sinha, Suraj Nandan Kushwaha and Sanjeev Chaurasia.
