Bihar Government Failed to Implement Food Security Bill: Paswan

Typography

Patna: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Monday accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of all talks and no action when he alleged that the Grand Alliance had failed to implement the food security bill resulting in the recent death of a dalit woman in Sheikhpura.

"Nitish Kumar was in a real rush to launch food security scheme in Bihar so he could take full advantage of it in the state elections. However, once the elections were over, the Chief Minister showed no interest in its implementation," the Union Food and Public Distribution Minister said.

Accusing the state government of making false claims to project Nitish Kumar as a very progressive leader, Paswan, however, excoriated him for being 'all talks and no action'.

"Nitish Kumar never misses an opportunity to pat his own back and take credit for everything good in Bihar while passing on the blame for his failure on the NDA government at the Center. The fact, however, remains that the poor folks of Bihar are not getting any food-grains resulting in starvation-related death in the state," the LJP chief said.

Demanding a high-level probe in the starvation death of a dalit woman in Sheikhpura, Paswan said that a team of central officials would soon visit Bihar to review the implementation of the food security scheme under the Nitish administration.
