Tejashwi raised questions on the increased crime graph and asked, “What is the Chief Minister and Deputy CM doing about the incident? Who gave permission to the police officer to act like General Dyer?”

LJP Chief Chirag Paswan slammed his former ally and held CM Nitish Kumar responsible for the incident.

“Murder case should be registered against the local police officials. Firing on devotees shows Nitish’s is a Talibani regime. The Chief Minister is now playing the role of General Dyer, who ordered the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. I am sure the CM is responsible for the incident. An investigation should be done,” he said.

Tejashwi also launched a veiled attack against Deputy CM Sushil Modi and said, “Modi had told criminals to continue with their activities after the elections.”
