The Shiv Sena has termed the Munger firing incident as an “attack on Hindutva” and questioned the alleged silence of the Bihar Governor and BJP leaders on it.
Shiv Sena Leader and Rasjya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said : “If such an incident were to happen in Maharashtra, West Bengal or Rajasthan, governors and BJP leaders would have demanded President’s Rule.”
Earlier , RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav and LJP’s Chirag Paswan have lashed out at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the police firing in Munger district .
Tejashwi was quoted by NDTV as saying, “What was Bihar’s chief minister doing? What was Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi, who is a leader of the BJP, doing? They have a double-engine government. Did they not have information? This [inaction] shows the role they played in the incident.”
LJP president Chirag Paswan, accused Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of “playing role of general Dyer”. Paswan was quoted by ANI as saying, “Who is responsible for the firing and lathi-charge incident in Munger? Chief minister is now playing the role of general Dyer who ordered the Jallianwala massacre. I am sure chief minister is responsible for the incident, an investigation should be done.”
One person was killed and over two dozen people, including security personnel, were injured in firing and stone-pelting during goddess Durga idol immersion in Munger on Monday night.
