“BJP’s Arvind Kumar Singh calls out RJD’s involvement in Bihar’s Transfer-Posting game”
Patna: The political landscape in Bihar took a tumultuous turn as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accused the Mahagathbandhan government of indulging in a massive scam across various departments. This accusation comes just a day after the Bihar government cancelled the transfer postings of 480 circle officers. According to BJP’s Nikhil Anand, this transfer-posting scandal is the latest addition to a long list of corruption cases within the state administration.
According to the news agency IANS, Nikhil Anand, the national general secretary of BJP’s OBC wing and a spokesperson, minced no words as he addressed the media, stating, “Transfer-posting is the biggest scam in Bihar. Corruption has plagued numerous departments, from education, health, mining, Road Construction, to Social Welfare and Rural Development. Now, the Revenue and Land Reform department is embroiled in the biggest transfer-posting scam.”
He twitted, “Transfer-posting is an industry in Bihar but in reality it is the biggest scam of India. After corruption in the Bihar govt’s Education, Health, Mining, RCD, Social Welfare, Rural Development Deptts, the corruption in revenue & land reform department is exposed”.

Anand further alleged that ministers operating under RJD quotas were directly involved in manipulating the transfer-posting process. He claimed that if a thorough investigation were conducted, it would reveal a staggering scam amounting to over Rs 100 crore in the Revenue and Land Reforms department.
Supporting the claims made by Nikhil Anand, Arvind Kumar Singh, another senior leader of the BJP and party spokesperson, shed light on specific instances of attempted corruption. “The chief minister has taken action by canceling the transfer-posting of Revenue and Land Reforms department. K.K. Pathak has thwarted the transfer postings of more than 200 Block Education Officers (BEO) and district Education Officers (DEO), which were initiated by education minister Prof Chandrashekher.”
Singh further asserted that these incidents demonstrated the alarming extent of corruption within the state government. He accused the leaders of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) of engaging in corrupt practices, leading to a “give and take” culture. The Chief Minister’s recent actions, Singh suggested, reflected his displeasure and a commitment to take stern measures against the corrupt elements within his government.
“The entire Bihar government is involved in corruption, and the JD(U) is also being influenced by the RJD’s actions,” Singh added.
