Nitish Kumar Reacts To Giriraj Singh’s Comment On Beating Government Officials
The Bihar CM said that union minister Giriraj Singh should think himself if his choice of words against government officials was appropriate
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar condemned the advise given by union minister Giriraj Singh to the public about using bamboo sticks to beat up those government officials who do not listen to the commoners’ issues and grievances.
Talking to some reporters after an event in Patna, the Janata Dal (United) chief said that one must ask Singh himself if using such language is justified. Along with the BJP minister, the Bihar government, which is a part of the saffron party led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) also came under attack from Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav. He said that while the Nitish administration takes police action against whistleblowing journalists, it rewards those ministers who propagate violence.
Addressing the people of his Begusarai constituency at a function on Saturday, Giriraj had said that he will stand by all those whose grievances are not being tended to as it is every individual’s right to be heard by the government at every level. Further saying that he doesn’t want any complains about a government employee not listening to a complainant, the Minister of Animal Husbandry and Fisheries said that such officials should be beaten up. The video became viral after which many politicians raised objections to the inappropriate suggestion made by the politician.
This is not the first time the Bihar CM has dissed the comments made by a member of the BJP. Earlier during the state’s legislative polls, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath who was also the NDA’s star campaigner spoke about throwing out illegal immigrants and the BJP’s subsequent CAA and NRC implementation in the region. Soon after, at a separate rally, Nitish Kumar deplored his ally’s words saying that everyone has the right to live on their motherland.
