BJP leader under fire in Bihar for accident

BJP leader under fire in Bihar for accident”

Accused Manoj Baitha surrenders: Suspended BJP leader Manoj Baitha has surrendered to the police and has been shifted to Patna Medical College for treatment of injuries he suffered in the incident, ANI said in a tweet.

Nine children were killed and 24 others were injured on Saturday when a vehicle rammed into a government school building at Ahiyapur in Muzaffarpur. Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav said that the families of the victims told him that the killer vehicle belonged to the BJP leader and no arrest had been made so far.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar spoke on the incident for the first time in his speech in the Assembly on Wednesday, describing the mishap as "very saddening" and calling for stricter laws to cur road accidents in the densely populated state.

In the evening, public health and engineering minister Vinod Narayan Jha said Baitha has been suspended from the BJP because of the seriousness of the incident and because he is absconding.

Lawyer and member of the Swaraj Abhiyan said, "After denying knowing Manoj Baitha, who killed 9 children by his auto (while driving drunk in Bihar, which has prohibition), the BJP now suspends him!"

The Muzaffarpur hit-and-run case has exposed more than one deficiency in Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's administration in the state.

Kumar also denied reports that a banner fixed on Biatha's vehicle described his designation in the party as "state secretary general of Mahadalit Prakoshth".

"In drug free Bihar, a BJP leader under the influence of liquor kills nine innocent children". They alleged that the government was shielding the accused as he belonged to the BJP, a constituent of the JD (U)-led ruling coalition.

Mr Nitish Kumar, it this the reality of your policy of liquor prohibition?
