Sun-god will punish Nitish if does not resign: Lalu

Patna,(BiharTimes): Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Tuesday said that Nitish should tender resignation on moral ground for the failure of his government to make proper arrangement on the occasion of Chhath. If he fails to do so the Sun-god will punish him.

Lalu, who flew from Delhi after performing Chhath there reached Patna on Tuesday, reiterated that a case be registered under Section 302 of the IPC against officials responsible for the construction of the makeshift bridge that caved in on Monday evening.

He also met the families of the victims and paid from the party fund Rs 50,000 to the family of each of those killed in the tragedy.

Reacting to the chief minister’s appeal that politics should be kept out of the human tragedy, Lalu asked as to who have put up photos of chief minister and his cabinet colleagues all over the places on the occasion of Chhath. He added how can anyone remain silent on such a big tragedy. Responsibility has to be fixed on those involved in the tragedy.

Meanwhile, Union minister of state for agriculture Tariq Anwar sought a high-level inquiry into the tragedy and a compensation of Rs 10 lakh to the next of the kin of the deceased.

LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan also demanded a case be registered under Section 302 of the IPC against the officials concerned with making the arrangements. He said he
had already written a letter to both, CM Nitish Kumar and deputy CM Sushil K Modi, about the pitiable condition of ghats. He said he had suggested laying out huge cement pipes on sand leading to the river ghats.
