Bihar BJP on Saturday demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on moral grounds on the re-run of topper scam for the second year in plus two examination in the state. “Along with the chief minister, the state Education Minister Ashok Choudhary should also resign,” state BJP chief Nityanand Rai told reporters in Patna.

Asked if the party would initiate action against Samastipur district BJP leader Jawahar Prasad Singh who is the founding secretary of the school from where the dubious Arts topper Ganesh Kumar appeared in the plus two examination, Rai said, “I am not aware if he (Singh) is still associated with the party.” He, however, said the party favoured action against culprits irrespective of any consideration.

Jawahar Prasad Singh unsuccessfully contested Bihar Assembly election on BJP ticket from Kalyanpur seat in Samastipur in 1985 and 1990. He held different positions in the district unit of the party from 2000 to 2010.

      Hippocrates. Where in Power against every failure there's BJP has one line defence- Opposition should be constructive or Oppostion is Deshdrohi. So far BJP has totally failed in exposing VYAPAM Ghotala in which a number of investigators including from CBI has been killed or Petrol Pump Chip Chors. As per information circulating chips were made/sold in gujrat . All Petrol Pumps involved in Chori belong to Bhakts who show there bhakti on Taal thok Ke extra strong or are supporters of Taal thok Ke extra strong / Hallabol

        The issue is a systemic problem. BJP should involve some experts to identify what went wrong and help fix the system.

          Chief Minister should resign ? for what ? Over 40 witnesses to the multi-thousand crore Vyapam scam died under su ious cir stances or were murdered. a young college girl was found mutilated by the railway tracks , a professor was burnt alive in front of his house. And yet BJP never asked for the resignation Shivraj Chouhan . How much money has he given to keep modi's mouth shut ?

              Why ask Nitish resignation. The person in charge of education and implementation should be held accountable. What about the inspector who was supervising the exam? Need to find out how much he got paid and all those involved in the racket. It appears that all those qualified during Lalu goonda raj cleared on fake degrees and are probably holding high position should be investigated. Biharis corrupt minds and fake degrees in high positions is costing the country a lot.

                      did feku resign after 2002? did Shivraj Singh resign after Vyapam? did feku or Aunty resign after fake degree? BJP has no morality to even talk of resignation.
