Leader of Opposition in Bihar Legislative Assembly Tejashwi Yadav on Tuesday lashed out at the state government over the issue of crime and unemployment. He cited the figures that crime cases in the Nitish government have increased twice as compared to the RJD’s reign, but the RJD’s reign under a propaganda is called ‘Jungle Raj’.
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, while participating in the debate during the motion of thanks presented on the Governor’s address at the joint meeting of the Bihar Legislature on Tuesday, said that the number of cognizable offenses in the state in 2005 was 97,850 after Lalu Prasad stepped down, but In 2018, this number increased to 1,96,911. He claimed that the NDA regime registered a 101.2 percent increase in cases of cognizable crime since the RJD regime.
Tejashwi Yadav said that “the reigns of Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi are called ‘Jungleraj’ under a propaganda. He sarcastically said that the figures show that ‘Jungle Raj’ is under whose reign. He cited data from the National Crime Records Bureau that in 2000, Bihar was ranked 23rd in the country in crime, while in 2005 Bihar was ranked 26th.
Tejashwi Yadav also reminded that under RJD’s reign, there were lesser cases of crime in undivided Bihar, which had 54 districts, whereas today Jharkhand became 38 districts in Bihar after it became a separate state. Tejashwi also surrounded the Nitish government, raising the issue of unemployment. He said that the NDA government could not set up any factory in the state. In the matter of health and education, he also took a dig at the government.
