[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]BJP’s Bihar unit has accused the Nitish Kumar government of ‘arresting of innocents and partial action’ as several BJP leaders were arrested for indulging in and instigating communal violence.
The BJP alleged that the administration is going strict with majority community and soft towards minority and demanded “impartial probe”.
Sanjeev Chaurasia of the BJP met DGP KS Dwivedi and submitted a memorandum to him, alleging that innocent people are being targeted and culprits are being let off, said media reports
“The DGP has assured us that after investigation is complete, everything will be clear. No innocent will be punished & strict action will be taken against culprits,” Chaurasia was quoted as saying.
The BJP’s allegation came day after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that he will never compromise with the rule of law and is committed to communal harmony and brotherhood. Kumar also said that he could go to any extent to maintain his track record of law and order.
The BJP leaders said, “As per the reports received by us, 187 Hindus have been arrested as opposed to only 23 Muslims. One Nasir Khan, a local goon who is one of the main accused, was seen firing in the incident in Aurangabad. In other districts too, anti-social elements of the minority community attacked Ram Navami processions, threw shoes and pelted stones to incite people, following which the majority community people became violent.”
“We have urged the police to release the innocent people immediately and not to round them up in future. A high-level and impartial probe should be ordered into the lopsided attitude of the administration in these incidents,” the BJP leaders added.
Communal clashes, which had broken out between two groups in Bhagalpur and Aurangabad on the occasion of Ram Navami, spilled over to other parts of the state covering eight districts in all Nitish Kumar’s constituency Nawada was also not spared.
The outbreak of violence followed a set pattern. In all instances, processions led by BJP and allied Hindutva groups like Bajrang Dal made it a point to pass through Muslim dominated areas, brandishing weapons and shouting provocative slogans directed against the minority community and instigating violence, as per several media reports. A number of BJP members and followers of Hindutva groups ended up being booked and arrested in the cases that were lodged. The BJP is now complaining why the police did not charge an equal number of Muslims.
The incidents serve the purposes of BJP, which has a pattern of going for Hindutva campaign and polarising people wherever it seeks to expand its base.
However, the communal clashes also provided a chance to Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, under attack for being party to BJP game plan, to try to redeem some of the lost ground by laying claim to secular credentials and impartial administrator through action against communal hate mongers.
NDTV quoted a senior JD(U) leader as saying that the BJP complaint against state government’s action demonstrates “that the state government had, contrary to the propaganda by the opposition parties, acted swiftly and fairly… that the chief minister had delivered on his public commitment to uphold the rule of law irrespective of who the culprits are”.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
