Bihar too: JD(U) renews special status demand

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy CM Sushil Modi at a public meeting in Araria Wednesday

In July, Nitish Kumar dramatically walked out of the grand alliance with Lalu Yadav's RJD and the Congress and reunited with his party's 17-year-old partner BJP. "They should tell the people of Bihar how Tejashwi amassed properties worth thousands of crores at a young age of 28", Sushil said. Today Andhra Pradesh is at the same place where Bihar was after its bifurcation. "Nitish Kumar must apologise to people of Bihar", Tejashwi said. He challenged the CM to hear the voice of 'Antaratma' and take a decision like Chandrababu did by pulling out from the union cabinet.

The Speaker said that chanting slogans by the RJD leaders and others was a complete waste of Assembly's valuable time and it did not mean anything as such questions should be raised during the Question Hour and not during the general proceeding. In the letter Tejashwi had said that neither was the special status given to Bihar given nor the special package. They said that the chief minister ignored the plea and didn't bother to reply.

A tweet from jailed Lalu Prasad Yadav's official Twitter handle accused JD (U) president Nitish Kumar of "surrendering Bihar's benefits" for "personal gains" by not asking Narendra Modi to accord special status to Bihar, as he had promised during a rally before Lok Sabha elections of 2014. Kumar had quit the Grand Alliance following corruption cases against Tejashwi, the younger son of the RJD supremo, who was then the Deputy Chief Minister.

"Tejashwi, who is now campaigning for the RJD and Congress nominees for the three bypolls here, had been instrumental in allotting one seat - Bhabua Assembly constituency â€" to the Congress for the by-election slated for March 11. In one of the rallies in 2009 Bihar Chief Minister had created a flutter in the political circle by announcing his support to any party which grants special status category to Bihar.

Blaming Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of being a hypocrite with one moral standard for those he did not like and another for those who were in his camp, leaders representing various opposition parties led by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) yelled anti-Nitish slogans for not taking any action against the man who has been one of the most trusted bureaucrats of the Nitish administration.

"I had written a letter to Nitish ji on Feb 5 to raise the demand of special category status with Prime Minister Narendra Modi". RJD member said that the party chief had been implicated in this case.
