Tighten noose around criminals' neck
With the third consecutive victory in assembly elections, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has established his stamp of approval of his good governance in the state. His JD (U) may not have emerged as the largest political party in state or among the Mahagathbandhan, but one thing was crystal clear that it was his face that the grand alliance romp home with massive mandate. Not among the grand alliance, but also in the state across the political party matched his stature and track record as the CM of Bihar especially so far as the development of the state is concerned. The people of Bihar reposed faith in him to provide good governance in the state. He is also known as providing good and clean govt. to the state. Although Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal may have emerged as the largest political party after the result of the assembly elections in the state, it was Nitish Kumar who was in forefront that people voted overwhelmingly in favour of the Nitish Kumar led Mahagathbandhan of JD(U), RJD and Congress in the state. But it was apprehended that if the grand alliance won with major share by Lalu's RJD, he would like to play a dominating role in the Nitish Kumar govt. It was also expected that in the scenario of Maha agathbandhan coming to power with dominating role of RJD, the Jungle Raj might revisit. With the spurt in crimes in the state in the new regime of Nitish Kumar, a fear is noticed among the people of criminals and extortionists. The way two engineers have been reportedly killed by gangsters in Darbhanga has sent shock waves throughout the state. The reports are also pouring in from all over the state that extortion rackets have resurfaced and started flourishing all around. Undoubtedly, CM Nitish Kumar is a man of action and he acted to bring the perpetrators of crime in the state to book. He must act against criminals, mafia and anti-social elements with heavy hands to give the message in the state that rule of law has to be in place immediately and at all costs. Law and order and all round development have been the hallmark of Nitish Govt. in the state. So, he must act tough against all those who break the law irrespective of their political affiliations to be up to his reputation. There was total collapse of law and order in the 15 years of Lalu-Rabri duo regime, and it is Nitish Kumar who had brought the state on track. So, CM Nitish Kumar must stand to his reputation. If law and order deteriorates, there would neither be any investment nor any development in the state. He must enforce law and order to carry forward the unfinished task for the development of Bihar. The people of Bihar have expectation from Nitish Kumar. And he has to deliver the promises made to the people. It is Nitish Kumar who has a brought about an awakening among the girls that they were in no way inferior to boys in any respect.
