PATNA: RJD legislator and Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav today launched a direct attack on chief minister Nitish Kumar for the Muzaffarpur shelter home sex scandal and charged him with shielding the accused.
Addressing a Press conference in Delhi, he asked 20 questions from the chief minister and questioned his role as the PRD as well as Home minister in the light of sex scandal.
He alleged the newspapers being published by the main accused Brajesh Thakur received crores of rupees as advertisements despite limited circulation and questioned the chief minister for showing “bounty” on these papers.
“Who is the PRD minister since 2005 who gave advertisements worth crores to Thakur’s papers despite poor circulation? What’s the minister’s relations with Thakur and why the hard-earned money of the people was frittered away on giving advertisements?” Tejashwi asked.
He also asked the chief minister to explain why only Thakur’s newspaper was being circulated in the Bihar assembly premises and urged the Supreme Court to conduct an inquiry into such dealings.
He also questioned the silence of the chief minister despite very sharp comments on the state government over the sex scandal in government-run shelter home.
“Even after the Supreme Court called what happened at the Muzaffarpur shelter as ‘state-sponsored’, Nitish Kumar has carefully maintained his silence. Why is he quiet? Who is he protecting?” asked Tejahswi.
