“RCP Singh slams Nitish Kumar’s Governance, Calls bridge collapse a criminal Act”

Patna: Former Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader RCP Singh launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, as well as Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav and officials of the department. Singh criticized the government’s decision to construct a bridge on the Aguwani-Sultanganj route, a project that was announced back in 2006. Expressing concern, he highlighted that the cost of the bridge had escalated to a staggering 1700 crores after nine years.

Speaking at a program held in Ajnaura village in Nalanda, the former Union Minister questioned the quality of construction work carried out during Nitish Kumar’s tenure, referring to a previous collapse of the bridge. He raised doubts about the reasons cited for the collapse, questioning the technical, design, and structural aspects. Singh emphasized that the government should take direct responsibility for such failures and labeled it as a failure of Nitish Babu’s administration.

Singh further criticized Nitish Kumar’s governance, stating that the Chief Minister’s reputation was built on the foundation of good governance. He raised concerns about the lack of proper monitoring of major projects, highlighting the need for continuous supervision during their execution. Singh questioned Nitish Kumar’s commitment to monitoring, pointing out the Chief Minister’s frequent travels within the country and the alleged overseas trips of his office bearers. He expressed disappointment over the government’s failure to address the issues within Bihar while officials focused on projects elsewhere.

The former Union Minister highlighted the bridge collapse as a reflection of Nitish Kumar’s governance, asserting that it had tarnished his image. He questioned the credibility of the government when it came to advocating for good governance and stated that the incident went beyond a civil failure, suggesting it constituted a criminal act. Singh criticized the alarming condition of a bridge worth 1700 crores in a financially deprived state like Bihar.

The scathing remarks by RCP Singh have fueled the ongoing political discourse in Bihar. As the state grapples with infrastructure challenges and seeks development, the focus remains on the accountability of the government and the need for better oversight and execution of major projects. The incident has sparked a debate on the effectiveness of governance in Bihar and the responsibility of the ruling party in ensuring the welfare and safety of its citizens.
