The politics of Bihar has started heating up due to the response of the Central Government in the Supreme Court on the issue of Caste Based Census. Leaders of opposition parties have fiercely targeted the central and state government regarding this. RJD and Congress have demanded from the Bihar government to conduct caste census at their own expense. However, JDU hopes that the central government will respect the public sentiment. RJD has also said that CM Nitish Kumar should decide whether he wants to stay in NDA or not.
Issue related to caste census public sentiment
On this issue, JD(U) spokesperson Nikhil Mandal said that it is not a matter of any political party or person, it is public sentiment. The issue is passed by the Legislature. People from all parties have supported it. Meeting the Prime Minister, our CM and other leaders spoke vigorously. What happened in the court is not known, but we are sure that PM Narendra Modi, who always respects public sentiment, will take a decision this time too. He said that whatever decision the Center has to take, it should be taken soon. There is an option of census from the state government's own level.
Will movement together with the public
Congress Legislature Party leader Ajit Sharma said that the central government has given a wrong answer in the court. The PM had listened to the leaders of all the parties. He talked about taking a decision after thinking. But he has again proved that he only works for the corporate. Pressuring the Supreme Court is the murder of democracy. If the Center does not conduct the census, then we will meet CM Nitish Kumar and demand it. If this is not done then we will agitate with the people. Will write a letter to PM again.
Nitish Kumar should consider staying in NDA
On the other hand, RJD chief spokesperson Bhai Virendra said that this is a betrayal with the country. There is no demand for caste census today. Our leader Lalu Prasad had first demanded this. Tejashwi Yadav had also raised this demand in the assembly session. Now that the Center has made its stand clear, then CM Nitish Kumar has to announce what is his view on the issue. They should consider whether to stay in NDA or not.
