Nitish Kumar's love for Mahadalits 'eyewash': Paswan


Describing as 'eyewash' the Nitish Kumar government's 'love for
mahadalits', Lok Janshakti Party chief Ramvilas Paswan today said an
LJP panel had highlighted the miseries facing the dalits and
mahadalits in Bihar.

"Kumar's love for mahadalits is nothing but an eyewash...Our party
probe team has uncovered the plights of the dalits and Mahadalits in
Bihar," Paswan told reporters.

"No relief has reached the mahadalits and their condiion is
deteriorating day by day in the name of measures taken to uplift
them", he said.

"No transistors have been distributed...roads are in dilapidated
condition in the areas dominated by mahadalits and dalits... there is
no proper school and they struggle hard for managing two square
meals", Paswan alleged and wondered "what kind of love for
dalits/mahadalits" was all this about.

Turning to Kalyanbigha, the ancestral home of Nitish Kumar which has
been converted into a model village by the state government, he said
the fact-finding team found that the names of 300 mahadalit houeholds
were missing in the list of BPL, no house had been constructed under
Indira Awas Yojana, and old-age people had been deprived of social
security pension.

"People can well imagine what will be plight of the mahadalits in
other parts of the state," he commented and blamed Kumar "of doing
politics in the names of dalits and mahadalits keeping an eye on the
2010 assembly poll."
