Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in Patna on Thursday met with Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind and handed him a memo seeking his intervention in curbing crime in the state following the failure of the Nitish administration to keep criminals with political patronage under check.

The delegation to the Raj Bhawan was led by former Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, party state President Nityanand Rai, leader of the opposition in Bihar Assembly Prem Kumar, Nand Kishore Yadav, Arun Kumar Sinha, Hindustani Awam Morcha chief and former Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi and other BJP leaders.

"It is obvious that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has given up on law and order situation in Bihar in order to concentrate on the implementation of prohibition in the state. There is not a day that goes by without major crimes being committed in Bihar. What is even worse is that leaders like Lalu Prasad Yadav are now openly instigating violence against their political opponents right under the nose of the Chief Minister who remains a moot spectator while Bihar continues to burn," Nand Kishore Yadav said.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of BJP activists, reacting to yesterday's assault on them and their party office on Birchand Patel Marg by lathi-wielding RJD supporters, burnt effigies of Lalu Prasad Yadav, Nitish Kumar, and Congress leader Ashok Kumar Chowdhary at the busy Dak Bungalow intersection.

Modi also accused the police of protecting those in the power saying senior police officials had been put on notice not to take any action against the RJD, JD-U, or Congress workers.

"This is gross abuse of power and the Governor has a moral obligation to step in and help restore law and order in the state since the Chief Minister has failed to do so," he said.
