'Will hang rioters upside down', Shah on Bihar Ram Navami clashes
No point in speaking to state government: Shah
Addressing the rally, Shah said he was supposed to go to Sasaram “but due to the unfortunate situation there I was not able to go. People are being killed there, bullets are being fired and tear-gas shelling is happening. I will come to Sasaram surely during my next visit”.
“I pray to god that peace is restored at the earliest in the state. There is no point in speaking with the state government here. When I called the Governor, Lalan Singh (JDU president) got offended,” said the home minister.
Shah bypassed federal structure: JD(U)
In a press conference that was held just moments after Shah’s speech in Nawada, JD(U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar attacked the home minister for bypassing the federal structure and “spoke with the Governor rather than speaking with the elected CM”.
“Isn’t a person from a backward section acceptable to Amit Shah that he didn’t speak with Bihar CM,” said the spokesperson.
Hitting back at Shah, the JD(U) said the Nitish Kumar government had done a lot of developmental work in Bihar and that the home minister was “tarnishing the image of the state and making false promises”.
‘No tie-up with RJD or JD(U)’
“The government which has jungle raj’s Lalu Prasad Yadav’s party, can that government bring peace in Bihar? Nitish Kumar sat in the lap of Lalu Prasad Yadav due to hunger for power, we will uproot the ‘Mahagathbandhan‘,” Shah said, adding that the BJP will “never join hands with Nitish or the RJD”.
“The rioters running amok in Sasaram and Biharsharif will be hung upside down if the BJP comes to power in the state in 2025,” Shah said, adding that “PM Modi’s Lotus” will bloom on all 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state in the 2024 general elections. “Bihar CM Nitish Kumar won’t become Prime Minister. People of the country have decided that Narendra Modi will become the Prime Minister of the country for the third time,” he added.
Appropriate action will be taken against miscreants causing violence: Nitish Kumar on Ram Navami incidents
“After the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the JDU-RJD alliance in Bihar will collapse and the BJP will form the government,” said Shah.
The home minister further said that Lalu and Nitish practiced politics of appeasement which helped terrorism flourish.
Meanwhile, MoS (home) Nityanand Rai said the Tejashwi and Nitish Kumar coalition government is not concerned about development, law and order, or the safety of “natives of Bihar”.
“The government has a negative thinking. It’s just ignoring the order of law. The accused people and miscreants are getting sheltered and they are roaming freely. The government in Bihar is getting protection from those people who are making conspiracies for communal tensions,” he said.
