Amid another engineer’s murder in Vaishali and the Opposition’s jibes of “return of jungle raj” against the Grand Alliance government, RJD chief Lalu Prasad said that some people were trying to “divert attention” from good governance and create panic among construction firms.

Speaking on governance for the first time since the formation of the Nitish Kumar-led government, Lalu Tuesday advised the CM to send DMs and SPs to villages to restore confidence of the public. The RJD chief’s press conference comes after the killing of two road construction engineers in Darbhanga on Saturday, and the Opposition BJP seizing the opportunity to slam the state government for “deteriorating law and order”. “Some criminals have been trying to create panic so that people engaged in government works are cowed down (to pay extortion). We want senior officers like DMs and SPs to visit villages to restore confidence,” Lalu said.

“It is our government. There is no reason to worry. We will provide safety and security to construction companies at work. We will also provide all possible help to the families of the Darbhanga project engineers,” said the RJD chief.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday held a law and order review meeting and pulled up top police officers, saying the government should not be at the receiving end for “lapses of police”.

On Tuesday, Vaishali police found the body of an IT engineer from a pit in Muzaffarpur. There were several injury marks on the body. The victim, Ankit Kumar Jha (42), was a quality engineer with an IT firm and looked after the north Bihar affairs of the company. Vaishali SP Rakesh Kumar said, “We ascertained the identity of the victim through a diary and I-card from his pocket.”

Jungle raj back in Bihar: Paswan

New Delhi: In the wake of recent killings in Bihar, Union Minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan said on Tuesday that “jungle raj” had returned to the state. “We had expected this to happen at least six months later. But seems like the proponents of jungle raj (lawlessness) are already active. The (Nitish) government has become a government of ransom and kidnappings,” he said. ENS

          Now, one must give credit to Mr. Nitish that, he has created his place in the stories related to kids.If Kid asks to his Mom what is meant 'Jungle-Raj'? she won't have to say 'Kal Bataungi' as refered in TV ad by Ms. Kajol.She just can say instantly,'BIHAR STATE', with no imputes of vigor by drinking any substance.

                Lalu Prasad comments? Isn't this "chara chor" supposed to be in Tihar jail? By the way if the engineers are killed then there has to be replacements, all one has to do is watch who the replacements are. Simple. If engineers can die so can anyone.

                  FIRST the social media and the people should start a movement to stop people like rabri and misa from being thrust on the Rajya Sabha as they are incapable to making any contribution to the nation or enen their state. This is just to give lallu a big house and footing in Delhi. Everyone knows who did the goonda-girdi during lallu's time and now he himself says that this time too its the same people. Bihar should revolt before it gets too late. "short gun" Kirti you are elected reps of Bihar, be there with the people who put you where you are today instead of giving sound bytes from Delhi

                      "RJD chief Lalu Prasad said that some people were trying to “divert attention” from good governance". This is the good governance when the remote control is with Laloo; he is on bail even after being convicted. For his own sake, Nitishwa should break ties with Laloo, the sooner, the better for him and Bihar.
