Ram Vilas Paswan Patna, July 22 (ANI): A day after creating ruckus in the Bihar State Assembly, Opposition leaders in Patna reiterated High Court’s ruling asking the Central Bureau of Investigation to probe into the alleged treasury scam case involving Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief and former Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav said: “Nitish Kumar has no other way to rescue himself from the fear of CBI. Now he wants that I should speak up. If they (the government) pass a regulation will High Court and Supreme Court take back its decision?.”

Lok Jansahakti Party (LJP) President Ram Vilas Paswan, however, said that floor management of the House was weak and in such situations House could have been adjourned.

“This has been established and High court had given a judgment that CBI will investigate the case. He can do whatever he wants to do. If they want clash between judiciary and the lawmakers, it’s their wish,” said Paswan.

He blamed the Nitish Kumar-led Govt. for poor floor management that led to recent chaos in State Assembly.

He said: “Whatever happened over the past two days had been due to the ruling party and it has led to the embarrassment of Bihar State.”

On Tuesday, there was chaos in the State assembly when legislators of the Janata Dal (United) and the opposition, Rashtriya Janata Dal exchanged blows in the state legislature during which several members were injured.

On Wednesday, opposition legislators sat inside the assembly premises to stage a protest against the ruling party.

The uproar in the state assembly was sparked off by a demonstration in the wake of a directive of High Court in Patna ordering a probe by CBI, into Nitish Kumar’s role in the alleged irregularities of the State Treasury during his regime. (ANI)
