Death count rises to 288 in Odisha train tragedy, 803 remain injured
After Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar met his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal and extended his "complete support" in the ongoing clash with the Center over the control of administrative services, the BJP has pounced on the JDU supremo. BJP National Spokesperson Prem Shukla said that Nitish Kumar dreams of becoming the Prime Minister. Instead, he should focus on Bihar, said Prem Shukla.
"He dreams of becoming the Prime Minister. Instead, he should discharge his duties as Chief Minister of Bihar, his constitutional responsibility," he said. Sanjay Mayukh, BJP MLC in Bihar, said Kumar should leave his "dream world" as there was no vacancy for the post of chief minister.
The people of the state will never forgive him for pushing it deeper and deeper into crime and corruption, he claimed. The BJP said Nitish Kumar should pay attention to his state, which is being pushed into "anarchy", instead of dreaming of becoming the prime minister.
Kumar met opposition leaders in an attempt to forge an alliance of non-BJP parties and threw his weight behind Kejriwal over the Delhi Chief Minister's protest against an order passed by the Center on the issue of authority over transfers and postings of government officials. in the national capital.
Nitish Kumar was accompanied by his deputy and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav. The Center on Friday promulgated an order to create a National Capital Civil Service Authority for the transfer of IAS and DANICS cadre officers and disciplinary proceedings against them.
