"Under the dominance of numerically strong Lalu Prasad, it appears that the Nitish Kumar government has lost the will to take on criminals," senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi said
"The fear of return of jungle raj has appeared to be true in Bihar as indicated by killing of two engineers in Darbhanga, gunning down of a jeweller in Patna today and regular news reports of extortion calls by criminals to doctors, engineers and industrialists," Sushil Modi added.
Sushil Modi, who is Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council, said soon a delegation of BJP would meet Governor Ramnath Kovind and seek his intervention to check the spiralling crime graph.
In a scathing attack at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, the senior BJP leader asked "What happened to his pre-poll assurance to people of 'main hoon na'."
Sushil Modi alleged that Bihar was returning to path of "jungle raj" which was prevalent during 15 years rule of Lalu Prasad's party in the state from 1990-2005.
"There are clearly two centres in Bihar today, one led by Lalu Prasad and another Nitish Kumar," he said and pointed to the RJD chief telephoning civil and police officials and giving directions to them on law and order issue.
