The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over his remark on recent Bihar topper scam. Kumar blamed the people for spoiling the image of the state. BJP said that the Chief Minister cannot refute his responsibilities.
“Whatever is happening in Bihar in terms of education is sad. The Chief Minister cannot refute his responsibilities. The education system in Bihar is not good,” BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said.
Another BJP leader Prabhat Jha echoed the similar sentiment and suggested Kumar to first advance the condition of his own state rather than pointing out on others. “The first responsibility of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is to improve his own state instead of pointing out on others,” Jha said.
Kumar on Monday said at a press conference that “Not the outsiders, but people of Bihar play the main role in ruining the image of the state.” The government was putting efforts to ensure fair conduct of examination and to check cheating, he added.
Recently, question over education system of the state were raised after an Arts topper, Ganesh Kumar failed to answer basic questions. Besides, 65 per cent of the students failed the Bihar board.
