On Wednesday, the Bihar assembly had their last session of the budget. It was adjourned for a few hours as Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) or the opposition members demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in the wake of an order by a special POCSO court on Muzaffarpur sex scandal.
Opposition party leader Tejashwi Prasad Yadav raised “18 questions” in connection with the court order at Muzaffarpur last week, which he wanted to answer Mr. Kumar. The House started proceeding at 11 am.
The POCSO court had forwarded to CBI an application that was filed by one of the accused in the scandal, seeking an investigation into the role of the chief minister and a number of top bureaucrats in the release of funds to the shelter home from 2013 to 2018.
As soon as the proceedings began, the RJD members raised slogans against the state government. Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary urged them to calm down and let the House do its work for the interest of the public.
While talking to the reporters Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shravan Kumar condemned the opposition saying, “they have no issue to discuss and hence they resort to disruption. The House is in session and Tejashwi Yadav has the leisure to address a press conference in New Delhi, but does not find it convenient to attend the Assembly”.
Last week the Muzaffar court had given the order which has plunged the House into agitation on Monday that the opposition demanded the resignation of the CM.
On Tuesday, a press conference was called by Tejaswi Yadav in New Delhi where he attacked Mr. Kumar on the issue.
Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Social Sciences provided a report on the sexual abuse case last year, which triggered a political storm in Bihar.
Last year in May, an FIR was lodged and a number of persons, including Brajesh Thakur, the owner of the NGO running the shelter home, were arrested by police in connection with the scandal.
