As the death toll of children due to due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome ( AES) in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur continues to rise and shows no signs of receding the failure of the JD(U) and BJP government has come to the fore.
It has been a total governance failure and a mockery of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s tall claims of Sushasan in the state under him.
It was no wonder that due to his callous attitude he had to face strong angry protests from the people and had to hear ‘Nitish go back’ slogans when he did visit the hospital days after the tragedy occurred .
If Nitish dodged questions from the media on the issue , his deputy Chief Minister BJP’s Sushil Modi too proved his is no different . He too was evasive on the raging issue . Showing as if he was not concerned at all.
It may be re- called that the BJP – JD(U) swept the Lok Sabha Polls of 2019 in Bihar winning 39 out of 40 seats but that success it seems has given away to damn care attitude and mis-governance .
