BJP targets Nitish Kumar as Bihar justice minister resigns


PATNA: The Bihar BJP has targeted Chief Minister Nitish Kumar after the resignation of Justice Minister Kartikeya Singh on Wednesday, who was fired from the Justice Ministry.

Taking a dig at BJP Chief Minister Rajya Sabha, MP Sushil Kumar Modi said Nitish Kumar’s government has lost its first wicket and is expected to lose more soon.

“Nitish Kumar’s first government wicket has fallen and more will fall in the future. Nitish Kumar has been beaten to the top tier,” Modi said.

Under fire for allowing a kidnapping accused to continue as justice minister, Nitish Kumar on Wednesday swapped Kartikeya Singh’s portfolio with sugar cane minister Shamim Ahmed. Soon after, Singh tendered his resignation which was accepted by the Chief Minister’s office and forwarded to Governor Phagu Chouhan.

Another MP Niraj Kumar Bablu said, “There is an Ali Baba Chalis Chor government in Bihar. Nitish Kumar has changed his minister’s portfolio but everyone is tainted. It is a kind of Ali Baba government. Baba Chalis Chor.”

Alok Ranjan, the former minister and BJP MP, said: “Nitish Kumar is so politically compulsive that he offers ministerial posts to leaders with criminal backgrounds. Nitish Kumar quit the NDA saying he missed of respect to the rulers of saffron. Now I mean he would realize the disrespect while remaining among the defiled rulers within Mahagathbandhan in Bihar.”
