The opposition was trying to create a 'perception' that incidents of crime was increasing in Bihar, but actually, "rule of law" had been prevailed in the state and would remain so in future, Kumar said while speaking in the Assembly on the motion of thanks on Governor's address.
"BJP leaders who shout on crimes of Bihar should also publish crimes in BJP ruled states of Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra," he cited.
Stating that leader of opposition Prem Kumar's figures on crime read in the House were not based on facts, Kumar read out official figures from NCRB and Bihar stands on 12th position in crime figures. As per the latest NCRB figure for the year 2014, he said, incident of crime is 3.3 per one lakh population in Bihar whereas that of BJP ruled Chhattisgarh is 3.9 and Haryana 4.5.
