Bihar CM Nitish Kumar speaks with Gujarat CM Rupani over attacks on non-Gujaratis

PATNA: Bihar leader minister Nitish Kumar stated on Monday he has spoken to his Gujarat counterpart Vijay Rupani and expressed concern over attacks in the western state on non-Gujarati people, including the ones from Bihar.

Condemning the alleged rape of a 14-month-old girl, which prompted the violent attacks, Nitish Kumar stated the guilty will have to be punished but an entire group will have to not be "tarred with the same brush".

"Our government is aware and alert. I spoke to the Gujarat chief minister Sunday. Our chief secretary and director general of police are also in touch with their counterparts in Gujarat," Kumar advised newshounds here.

"If somebody has committed a crime, he must be punished severely. But on account of one incident, people should not generalise and hold a grouse against an entire state," he stated.

Non-Gujaratis, particularly the ones hailing from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, were targeted by means of locals following the alleged rape of the girl by means of a native of Bihar, in Gujarat's Sabarkantha district on September 28.

The attacks intensified following the circulation of hate messages on social media. Police have arrested 342 people from more than a few parts of Gujarat for allegedly attacking non-Gujaratis.

Meanwhile, a JD(U) chief in a two-page open letter to Congress president Rahul Gandhi, blamed the grand previous celebration for the violence in opposition to Biharis.

"You appointed your Gujarat MLA Alpesh Thakor as one of the national secretaries in-charge of Bihar and his outfit Gujarat Kshatriya Thakor Sena is driving out migrant Biharis," Neeraj Kumar, a JD(U) MLC and spokesman, alleged.

He also took potshots at the Congress alliance with the RJD, announcing the Rashtriya Janata Dal is "headed by a convicted person (Lalu Prasad) whose son (Tejashwi Yadav) is also facing corruption charges".

Reacting to the JD(U) MLC's charge, Congress chief Prem Chand Mishra stated as an alternative of writing a letter to Rahul Gandhi, Neeraj Kumar will have to talk to his boss Nitish Kumar who's working a central authority in alliance with the BJP which laws Gujarat.

Madhepura MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav expressed strong resentment over the humiliation Biharis have to stand everywhere in the country, Gujarat being simplest the latest example.

He asked the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi to intervene and make certain that attacks on Biharis in Gujarat are stopped.

"If that does not happen, we will ensure that no Gujarati is able to enter Bihar for any purpose whatsoever," Yadav, who has been recognized for the usage of strong arm tactics in his three-decade-long political occupation, stated.
