Tejaswi Yadav’s tweet
Earlier, RJD tweeted from its official Twitter handle saying, “The corrupt JDU legislator whom Sushil Modi was looking for has been made a minister by Nitish Kumar.” On the other hand, former IPS officer Amitabh Das has written a letter to DGP SK Singhal for questioning the new education minister of Bihar.
In many cases of corruption, the fugitive accused was made the education minister.
None of the minority communities were made ministers.
The power is protected by criminals. Record breaking crime is out.
For the sake of the chair, the Chief Minister will continue his discourse on Crime, Corruption and Communalism.
