BJP lawmaker backs Z-plus security cover for Manjhi

Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nand Kishore Yadav on Monday backed the Central Government’s decision to provide Z-plus security to former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi, saying there are threats to the latter’s life.

“Even when Manjhi ji was Chief Minister, there were threats on his life. Even now there is threat to his life. Law and order situation is very bad ever since Nitish Kumar became the Chief Minister,” Yadav told ANI.

There is nothing wrong if Manjhi ji, who is a former chief minister, gets Z-plus security,” he added. (ANI)
