Will not compromise with those trying to divide the society: Nitish Kumar

Will not compromise with those trying to divide the society: Nitish Kumar

Mr Kumar told media persons here that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and President of TDP Chandra Babu Naidu had demanded special status for his state and it was right for any politician to make such demand from the Centre but the charges levelled against him of being silent on the issue of special status demand for Bihar, was baseless.

Ramchandra Yadav was allegedly beheaded on March 15 by more than 40 people who were armed with hockey sticks and swords.

Kumar clarified that the murder was not committed over naming a square after PM Modi.

Kumar declined to comment on the fresh conviction of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad in the fourth fodder scam case but said the claims of the former chief minister and his family members of being "framed" in corruption cases "could convince only hardcore supporters". "We don't compromise with corruption in the same way we will never compromise with communalism".


This was a direct attack by the CM on state BJP Chief Nityanand Rai, who as ET had reported on Sunday, said that the murder was due to a dispute over the "Modi gate" and that Bihar police had misinformed Sushil Modi. Someone started saying that murder happened because they made a chowk after Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"We will not side with divisive politics", he said. I can not stand it. "My commitment is towards people whether they belong to any caste or religion", Nitish said, while addressing a gathering at "'Yuvaon ki Bhumika' programme.

This strategy is making Nitish Kumar and LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan nervous, with the latter saying on Tuesday that the BJP should be focusing on highlighting the work it has done for Muslims in Bihar and that he had spoken to Union minority affairs minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Nitish Kumar on the issue. "Totally false that murder in Darbhanga because of naming Modi Chawk". Board was put long back.
