BJP slams Nitish for capsize

 The BJP on Sunday asked Nitish Kumar to accept responsibility for the Patna boat tragedy, which claimed 24 lives, and tender his resignation as chief minister.

Launching a frontal attack on the JD(U) strongman for the recurrence of such accidents, senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi said, “If Nitish can take the credit for successfully organising Prakash Parv — the recently concluded Sikh festival — he should take responsibility for the death of the 24 people too and resign immediately.”

The former deputy chief minister also said that an FIR should be lodged against Nitish in this regard.

BJP chief whip in the Assembly Arun Kumar was more scathing in his attack.  “Nitish gave his full attention towards successfully organising Prakash Parv in Patna and Kalchakra Puja in Bodh Gaya. But he paid little attention to Makar Sankranti, one of the most auspicious Hindu festivals. He has no moral right to continue as the chief minister,” said Kumar,  the BJP MLA from Kumhrar.
