Patna: Putting Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United)-Bharatiya Janata Party government in dock over recent CAG report, Lok Janshakti Party president Ramvilas Paswan termed it as an “expose of glaring corruption flourishing during NDA rule in Bihar”.  

The fresh CAG report gave Paswan a new opportunity to criticize the Nitish government. The LJP is striving hard to consolidate its vote bank in the state. In the last Lok Sabha poll, LJP’s vote bank had shifted towards the JD (U) resulting in the stunning defeat of Paswan in Hajipur.  

Paswan told reporters here that the CAG report which was tabled in Bihar assembly on April 3 had "exposed glaring corruption in every page".

A party delegation would soon meet the President and Prime Minister to press for a CBI probe into the corruption and financial irregularities highlighted by the CAG and to press for sacking of the Nitish Kumar government.

The LJP leader said a party delegation would also meet Governor Devanand Konwar here to submit a memorandum in support of their demands.

LJP activists, he said, would hold demonstrations at all the district headquarters in Bihar against alleged loot and misappropriation of the state exchequer during Nitish's seven year rule.

Paswan alleged that the CAG report had highlighted that the state government had failed to submit the detailed contingent (DC) bills for Rs 22000 crore withdrawn through Abstract Contingent (AC) bills.

The state government had even failed to make available utilisation certificates to CAG for subsidy grant of Rs 8465 crore, Paswan said.
