Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has been facing a strong criticism over the continuing communal violence in the state over the past 10 days.

The failure of the state government to tackle the communal provocations that had been reported from Bhagalpur and had reached Samastipur and finally Nalanda District has been widely reported.

On the evening of March 29, while appearing on a Television channel, JD(U) general secretary Shyam Rajak delivered a message to the BJP to punish those who have widely contributed to the communal tensions. “Nitishji never compromises on the law and order from… and for this, we are willing to pay any price.”

Congress Party and opposition party leader Tejashwi Yadav have accused CM Kumar of letting the BJP to incite communal ante in the state. These prorogated communal tensions are calculated as a political strategy and a BJP’s attempt to prepare a strong ground for the run-up to the 2019 general election.

In Bihar, CM is seen loosig a certain amount of trust and credibility among general voters over the frequent change of his stand over the issues of corruption and communalism.

Political expert has said that good governance was always the USP of CM Kumar but right now he is really finding it difficult to stand on the promises he made to the people of Bihar.
