Embarrassing Chief Minister Nitish Kumar,an MP of ally BJP on Sunday questioned his government’s claim of good governance and development in Bihar and alleged that it has lost touch with ground reality as the leadership was “surrounded by sycophants”.

“Corruption has become a buzz word in Bihar and the people claim to have not seen prevalence of this magnitude of corruption in the system earlier…. The tall claims of good governance and development are nowhere to be seen across the state,” BJP MP Uday Singh said at a public meeting here. He said the CM was living in a ‘fool’s paradise’ if he believed he was as popular today as he was during the first stint of the NDA.

“It was a matter of time that the accumulated anger of the people would burst and sweep away the ruling coalition,” Singh said in an apparent reference to the protests that Nitish faced during his ‘Adhikar Yatra’.

The Purnia MP called his public meeting ‘Vedana (anguish) rally’ which coincided with Nitish’s public meeting in neighbouring Kishanganj district as part of his ‘Adhikar Yatra’.

He alleged both Nitish and his deputy Sushil Kumar Modi were surrounded by sycophants and have lost touch with ground reality.

The “overbearing” bureaucracy was compounding the unpopularity of the government by creating a gulf between the people and their political representatives.

Singh said he tried to bring the maladies to the attention of top leaders. When denied the opportunity,he was forced to organise the ‘Vedana rally’.
