Lok Janshakti Party (Ram Vilas) president Chirag Paswan on Wednesday slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his remark that RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav can get him shot and claimed that “deteriorating” law and order situation in the state has created a fear psychosis among people.
Mr Yadav had on Tuesday commented that he will ensure “visarjan” (political annihilation) of Nitish Kumar in the October 30 by-elections in Bihar, following which the JD(U) leader retorted that the former can get him shot but cannot do anything else.
“It’s ridiculous that the Bihar Chief Minister, who also holds the home portfolio, is making such statements. When the Chief Minister says this, the people of Bihar can understand well the law and order situation. The deteriorating law and order situation has created fear psychosis among people,” Mr Paswan told reporters.
Instead of giving such statements, the Chief Minister should take concrete steps to check the “rising crime graph” in Bihar, the MP of Jamui constituency in the state said.
