Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, in the name of celebrating the birth anniversary of former Chief Minister of Bihar Karpoori Thakur on Wednesday, took shots at the Nitish government saying the backwards and dalits were in worse condition in Bihar now than ever before under the current Nitish-Lalu-Congress regime.

"We have asked the Chief Minister on many occasions to increase the reservation for extreme backward castes in Panchayat elections from 20 to 30 percent but he has refused to listen to us. On all matters he does not mind speaking his mind but on this particular issue, he is maintaining a silence at the behest of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav," former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Kumar Modi said.

Modi excoriated the Chief Minister for trying to underplay the sharp decline in law and order in Bihar and mocked him for trying to fool the people by holding meetings with top police officials.

"To fool the people of Bihar, he continues to hold meetings with top police brass but there is a reason why no RJD leader ever is present in one of those meetings. The fact of the matter is, the Chief Minister has no intention on checking crime in Bihar. He has completely given up on it," the BJP leader said.

On the recent rape of a 15-year old girl allegedly by the RJD legislator Raj Ballabh Yadav, the former Deputy CM said that Yadav was suspended because of growing pressure from the media.

"There are many such people with criminal mindset in the RJD and the JD-U. On one hand the RJD says that Yadav would surrender to the police soon and on the other, police says it has no idea where the rape accused is. It is quite obvious that Yadav is being protected and shielded by the Nitish government," he said.

Modi also slammed the Chief Minister for being on the wrong side of the history on terrorism issue.

"First he said that Ishrat Jehan, a terrorist, was 'Bihar ki Beti' (daughter of Bihar) but as soon as it was confirmed that she indeed was an LeT operative, Nitish Kumar denied having ever called her 'Bihar ki Beti'. Now he wants to make JNU students' union President Kanhaiya Kumar 'Bihar ka Beta' after he made incendiary comments about India while supporting a terrorist like Afzal Guru. Those who are trying to break the nation are being supported by this government in Bihar. However, the public is not stupid and it knows who is a real patriot and who is working against India," he said.
