Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) state president Ramchandra Purvey,
speaking at a dharna held by the party's extreme backward cell at
Kargil Chowk in Patna on Tuesday, ripped the NDA administration on
'atrocities against the poor and backwards' in the state saying things
were so bad in Bihar that the RJD had no option left but to launch a
statewide agitation against the Nitish government.
"Crime against the dalits has gone up several fold under the current
administration. NDA leaders with strong criminal background are
committing atrocities on those whose voices are not represented in the
government. Women, particularly those belonging to the extreme
backward castes and minorities, are also an oppressed lot. Given these
ground realities, we have no choice but to launch a statewide
agitation to draw the attention of the public towards these issues,"
The RJD leader further said that that a girl was raped in Vikram block
a few days ago but the police is yet to take any action against the
"Between October 28 and December 22, 47 such incidents have taken
place in Bihar out of which 30 belong to extreme backward castes but
the government has opted to ignore these cases," Purvey said.
