A day after taking the oath of office, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday held a marathon meeting on the law and order situation and stressed to senior civil and police officials that “there shall be no compromise on the rule of law”. Kumar talked to IGs, DIGs, SPs and DMs via video conferencing and directed them to maintain rule of law, saying there should be “no compromise in that regard”.The Bihar chief minister told reporters after the three- hour meeting that he has given clear instructions to officials that “crime has to be curbed in all circumstances”.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”Whoever is breaking the law is a criminal and should be dealt with according to the law irrespective of his standing and position,” said Kumar, who has kept the home portfolio with himself.It is significant that Kumar’s first official engagement after his swearing-in on Friday was a meeting on the law and order situation in the state given that he had faced rival parties’ barbs of a “return of jungle raj” over JD(U)’s poll tie-up with RJD, whose 15-year rule drew claims that the law and order situation had worsened in Bihar.Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav was not present at the meeting, which was attended by Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh and state police chief PK Thakur. The chief minister stressed on the need for a scientific approach for faster investigation of crimes. He also emphasised the continuation of the practice of the holding of camp by Circle Officers and Station House Officers every week to solve land dispute cases.Kumar told officials that the DM and SP would be held responsible for any communal incidents and warned that the response should be quick for quelling communal tension. He also stressed on expeditious trial and conviction, saying that it had yielded good results in the past.Meanwhile, on the day when Kumar held a state-level review of the crime situation, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan and senior Bihar BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi paid a visit to Lalganj in Vaishali district where an SHO was killed earlier this week by a mob following the death of two persons in a road accident. One person was also allegedly killed in police firing on protesters.Paswan later talked to reporters in Patna and demanded a judicial probe into the alleged communal clash in Lalganj. The LJP chief alleged that the district administration was acting “under political pressure in the wake of the incident and booking party supporters at the behest of a JD(U) leader who lost the poll”.

Bihar Elections: Newbie ‘Gareeb Aadmi Party’ makes a debut this year

Styled as ‘Gareeb Aadmi Party (GAP)’ and barely a year-old, the Delhi-based new outfit says that like the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ it seeks to offer an “alternative politics” and is asking voters to “mind the GAP” between “Modi camp and Nitish-led grand alliance”.

A small political outfit modelled on AAP is making its debut in Bihar elections, while a journalist seeking civic changes in the capital, along with a string of other independent candidates is testing fortunes in the hustings.Styled as ‘Gareeb Aadmi Party (GAP)’ and barely a year-old, the Delhi-based new outfit says that like the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ it seeks to offer an “alternative politics” and is asking voters to “mind the GAP” between “Modi camp and Nitish-led grand alliance”.”We are fighting this polls with all our might and spirit and have fielded candidates for 19 seats including Digha, Danapur, Bankipur and Kumrahar, Phulwari, Patna Sahib in Patna district. Our candidates are also in the fray in Muzaffarpur, Vaishali, Hajipur as well.Two of our candidates are also competing against Laluji’s two sons in Mahua and Raghopur constituencies,” GAP’s national state president, Shyam Bhartiya told PTI.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The new party was founded in March, towards the fag end of the Lok Sabha polls last year, and it even fought on 11 seats then, albeit unsuccessfully. Bhartiya, who rebelled from the AAP, said, “I still believe in the vision with which AAP was formed, so we chose to name it as GAP.””We fought in UP, Jammu and Kashmir, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, among other places, and though we failed to win any seat, our performance as a debutant was encouraging, and so, we decided to enter Bihar polls representing the common man. And, even if we can win one seat in Bihar, it will be a moral victory for us,” he said.Incidentally, the party’s Bihar president Dilip Kumar Singh, rebelled from RJD to join GAP, and he says the “whistle party symbol” is for “driving the political thieves away”.Patna goes to polls on Wednesday, along with five other districts Bhojpur, Vaishali, Buxar, Nalanda, Saran — in the third phase of the high-octave Bihar elections, which will span 50 crucial constituencies. AAP is not in the fray in the Bihar polls.Dust will settle this evening in the six districts and loudspeakers and megaphones will fall silent, after the high-decibel political campaign ends ahead of the October 28 polls. But, amid political giants like Modi-Shah-led NDA and Nitish Kumar-led “Grand Alliance”, a journalist has decided to enter the battlefield, asking people to “reject political shenanigans” and vote for a pro-development candidate.42-year-old Brajesh Mishra, editor of a small city-based monthly has plunged into the political battle from the crucial Kumrahar seat, which has a maximum number of 34 candidates, among all seats in Patna district.”Our issues are quite simple but these are nagging problem of the area waterlogging due to poor drainage and provision of water And, Mishraji before entering politics has been campaigning for the welfare of people and betterment of civic issues by holding several dharnas,” an official from his office in Ashok Nagar East area said.Mishra held a roadshow on Monday in his constituency before curtains come down on the poll campaigns.In Kumrahar, he faces BJP MLA Arun Kumar Sinha and a Congress candidate in Atiq Haider from the ‘Grand Alliance’, himself a former MLA.Mishra is riding on ‘camera symbol’ and so, chorus of “camera chap zindabad!” rent the air as his small group of supporters hold the roadshow.But, whistles and cameras aren’t the only quirky symbols in use this Bihar polls, as independents and small parties have added flavour and upped the fun quotient with such amusing choices. So, two other independent candidates in Kumrahar are fighting the polls on ‘pen-stand’ and ‘cylinder’ symbols while Garib Janta Dal (Secular) is riding on an ‘auto’.The party’s canvassing done on megaphones-carrying auto-rickshaws look amusing and attract quite a few eyeballs. Then there is ‘Krantikari Vikas Dal’ with a ‘chhari chhap’ or stick symbol, adding further to the amusing list.But, it is not just names and symbols that are lending humour to the high-pitched electoral battle, the campaign songs too are quite a draw. So, while Congress has gone with its pet Jay Ho theme, the Mahagathbandhan has used the Mahabharat serial opening theme lyrics to woo voters.”Congress-JDU-RJD se aage badhe Bihar, jab bane Mahagathbandhan ki sarkar,’ screams a loudspeaker during a canvassing in Kankar Bagh locality of Kumrahar constituency.Adding to the list of oddities are — green chilli, cauliflower, ice cream, shoe, chappals and bucket — some of the election symbols which were allotted to registered, unrecognised political parties contesting the Assembly polls. Some of the other parties in fray, which have interesting names include ‘Aap Aur Ham Party’, National Tiger Party , Saathi Aur Aapka Faisla Party and National Road Map Party of India.Jitan Ram Manjhi’s ‘Hindustani Awaam Morcha (Secular) has been allotted ‘telephone’ as its symbol. His party has been granted the symbol to contest all the 243 seats. ‘Lok Awaj Dal’, another party contesting the polls, has been alloted green chilli as its symbol.It has been alloted symbol for 50 seats. The ‘ice cream’ symbol has been alloted to Aam Janata Party Rashtriya .Bihar Assembly has 243 seats and the Wednesday polls hold key to the fate of six important districts and 50 crucial seats. But, newbies pitted against biggies and independent candidates have certainly brought a different style of humour to the polls, otherwise seen and heard only in election rallies.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar admitted that reports of rampant use of unfair means in the ongoing matriculation examination has sullied the image of the state following which he passed strict orders to stop it.

Pariksha me kadachar ke karan jaghasiyi hui hai…hamne kadachar rokne ke liye karwai ke aadesh diye hai (reports of cheating in examination has drawn bad name to Bihar…I have ordered to stop cheating in ongoing matriculation examination),” Nitish Kumar said.

His order for ensuring cheating-free matriculation examination had its impact on Saturday with the police apprehending 213 students and 712 parents, relatives, friends of examinees from different parts of the state, Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters) Gupteshwar Pandey told PTI.

He said six policemen, four from Vaishali and two from Jamui, were arrested during the day for aiding in cheating during examination at different centres.

A total of 551 examinees have been expelled across the state for using unfair means on a single day on Saturday and penalty of Rs 13 lakh imposed, the ADG said.

In Vaishali that had gained notoriety for large-scale use of unfair means and from where came the visuals of parents climbing three to four storeyed building to provide chits to their wards, stringent action was seen during the day.

The ADG said that in Vaishali a total of 81 students were expelled and 161 students, parents and helpers arrested.

One person on exam duty was also nabbed when he was helping in copying in Vaishali while a female official escaped, he said.

Four homeguard jawans were caught and a fine of Rs 3.20 lakh collected in Vaishali district during anti-cheating operations in the day.

With pictures of cheating in exam drawing nation-wide attention, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Upendra Kushwaha on Saturday said his ministry would seek a report from Bihar government over reports of rampant cheating during board exams in the state.

“The Union HRD ministry will seek a report from the state on the subject and give guidelines to conduct cheating-free examination,” Kushwaha said.

“The matriculation examinations in the state are being conducted under pathetic conditions,” Kushwaha said.

He slammed state Education Minister PK Shahi for not being able to ensure cheating-free exams and instead putting the onus on parents of examinees on the issue.

“The Patna High Court has rightly said that if the minister has not been able to conduct fair examination he should keep himself away from the responsibility,” he said.

“If he (Shahi) is not competent, he shall make way for others… he shall be asked to do so,” said Kushwaha, who is also the President of Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), an ally of BJP in NDA.

A total of 14.26 lakh students were appearing for the exams at 1,217 centres in the state that started on March 17.

The examination will end on 24 March.

Principal Secretary Education R K Mahajan told PTI that there has been tremendous impact of strict instructions for holding fair examination today.

Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh spoke to all DMs and SPs through videoconferencing last evening and directed them to initiate strict measures to stop cheating in matriculation examination.

Taken to task by the Patna High Court over large-scale copying in the matriculation examination and widespread criticism from several quarters, the Bihar government had yesterday swung into action and cancelled examination at four centres and took seven policemen into custody for aiding in cheating.

Visuals of widespread copying at exam centres across the state and Bihar Education minister P K Shahi’s argument that state alone could not stop it, had come as a rude shock.

While addressing young entrepreneurs at a function here, Chief Minister Kumar criticised BJP leaders for trying to drive political mileage from reports of cheating in matriculation examination.

He appealed to examinees and their parents to shun use of unfair means as it would not help them in any way.

“One can get a certificate by using unfair means in examination but will not gain knowledge… cheating will not help in any way,” Kumar said.

Meanwhile, RJD MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav today criticised Shahi for expressing inability to check unfair means in matriculation examination.

“The minister’s assertion has sullied image of Bihar in the country and the world…the Chief Minister shall remove Shahi from Education department and considering its importance shall bring the department under his direct control,” Pappu Yadav, RJD MP from Madhepura, said.
