After the heated exchange between Nitish Kumar, Chief Minister of Bihar, and Vijay Kumar Sinha, the Legislative Assembly Speaker, Tejashwi Yadav of Rashtriya Janata Dal, took a dig at him.
Tejashwi Yadav said Tuesday that the attitude of the Chief Minister towards the Assembly, and the Speaker of Assembly, is an insult to democracy. He said that such behavior is not expected of a Chief Minister of the State.
“Bihar Chief Minister Nitish K Kumar has done the work to kill democracy in the Assembly by dictating who is the custodian (Speaker). It is unacceptable to point fingers at the speaker or teach lessons about the Constitution. The Chief Minister should apologize to the House today,” said the RJD leader.
Mr. Yadav stated, “I have only seen such incidents during the term of BJP government. This is not a dictatorship but a democracy. It is shameful and a failure for the assembly if the state leader points the finger at the Custodian.”
Nitish Kumar accused Speaker of “violating the Constitution” by questioning his government about the Lakhisarai investigation.
This is a COVID-19 protocol violation that occurred during the Saraswati Puja celebrations last month in Lakhisarai. Two people were taken into custody by the Bihar Police.
Assembly Speaker raised objections to the police action. He claimed that two innocent people were made scapegoats by Bihar Police, who arrested them. No action was taken against the organizers of the event.
Nitish Kumar stated, “You are violating Constitution. The House won’t run this way. It is not a good idea to raise the same issue each day. The Privilege Committee’s report will be considered. The Constitution runs the system. Any crime report goes to the court, not the House.”
