Patna: RJD national general secretary and spokesperson Ram Kirpal
Yadav today charged Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar with dividing
the society on caste lines by creating a Mahadalit Commission and
diverting the funds released for the SCs and STs by the Centre.
Addressing a function organised by ''Bhhuiyan and Musahar'' community
at the party headquarters, Yadav and deputy leader of the opposition
in the state assembly Shakeel Ahmed Khan said that the trick of Nitish
Kumar constituting a Mahadalit Commission and not providing the status
of mahadalits to the Paswans would boomerang as the Paswans would
teach the NDA a lesson in the upcoming assembly eletions.
The two RJD leaders said the Paswans form 30.9% (40.2 lakh)of the 1.30
crore SC population and they would vote in toto in favour of the
RJD-LJP combine as the NDA government had shown them a cold shoulder.
The RJD leaders wanted a clear cut reply from Kumar as to why people
were dying of hunger in rural Bihar. ''Depsite the state claims that
not a single person had died of starvation we have definite
information that about 500 people have died of starvation in the
state'', they said.
While Kumar was talking about development, not a single industry has
been set up in the state in the past four and half years rule of the
NDA in Bihar, the RJD leaders alleged.
