Engineers murder: Jungle Raj back in Bihar, says BJP leader Giriraj Singh

Mumbai: The murder of two engineers in Bihar shows that the return of Jungle Raj is inevitable in the state ruled by JD(U)-RJD-led alliance, Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh said on Sunday.

Terming JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar as a “dummy Chief Minister”, Singh said that the actual power lies with RJD boss Lalu Prasad Yadav.

“Return of Jungle Raj is inevitable in Bihar. We had cautioned the people of the state about this during poll rallies,” he said when asked to comment on the killing of two engineers of a private road construction company in Darbhanga district.

The two were shot dead by unidentified men on Darbhanga-Kusheshwarsthan state highway yesterday. Police suspects a case of ransom money.

“Though we respect the verdict given by the people of Bihar (in October-November elections), the truth is the era of extortion, dacoity, loot, murder is going to be back now because Nitish is a dummy CM and actual power lies with Lalu,” Mr Singh, a former Bihar Cabinet minister said.

“The Chief Minister should concentrate on law and order front and curb “rising” cases of dacoity, murder, kidnapping and extortion,” the Lok Sabha lawmaker from Nawada said.
