Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar held a press conference this Monday morning over the highlighted Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case rage by the opposition. He said, I am not concerned about my image, I work with utmost commitment. Criticising the incident he said, It is a shameful incident. It has soiled every Bihari’s image. But, it’s a Bihari only who initiated an independent enquiry into the case.  Calling the allegation on his ministers baseless he explained, If someone related to the Minister Manju Sharma is involved, they won’t be spared. But why is this issue being raised only now? We had called Sharma and she denied any involvement. How is it justified to level baseless allegations?

Social Welfare Minister Manju Sharma has been alleged of her husband’s involvement in the rape case of shelter home girls. On Saturday, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav had led a candle light march at Jantar-Mantar in Delhi along with Rahul Gandhi, CM Arvind Kejriwal and other leaders from opposition parties to protest against the Muzaffarpur rape case. In the protest, Yadav also demanded the resignation of CM Nitish Kumar.

Nitish Kumar in his press conference complained dharna was held so the debate on corruption is scuttled. It was used as a stage for political goals. Corrupt leaders accused in many cases & a minister, who uses bad words for women, stood with the candle in march.

Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi also criticised the candle march by the opposition and said, “Jo naitikta ki baat kar rahe hain, jinke ghar mein chaara ghotaale ke doshi baithe hain, jis Tejashwi Yadav aur Rabri Devi ko railway tender mamle mein summon kiya ja chukka hai, vo dusron se isteefa maang rahe hain” (Those who are alleged of fodder scam, Tejashwi Yadav and Rabri Devi who have been summoned are talking about the morals and ethics and are demanding chief minister’s resignation.

Patna HC has given 2 weeks time to CBI to prepare a report on Muzaffarpur shelter home case. The court has asked state govt to provide details on rehabilitation of the inmates of shelter home. The state government’s written argument was presented before Patna HC today which court has accepted. Court has also accepted state govt’s appeal to hold HC-monitored CBI enquiry and conduct speedy trials in special court, said Lalit Kishore (Advocate General, Patna HC).
