"The focus of Nitish Kumar should be Bihar to reduce crime graph there instead of focusing on Jharkhand," state BJP spokesperson Pradip Sinha said here.

On Kumar accusing the ruling BJP of "taking away" six Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik) MLAs soon after the creation of the BJP-led NDA government in the state, Sinha said the Bihar Chief Minister should have known that the matter is sub judice.

"Nitish Kumar should have known that the matter is in the Speaker's court and some people have also approached the High Court. He should have waited till the verdict," he said.

Kumar in Bokaro on Tuesday had alleged that when Raghubar Das formed government in Jharkhand, he "took away JVM MLAs, which is immoral and illegal under anti-defection law".

In a separate meeting in Dhanbad, he launched a campaign for ban on sale of liquor which his government has imposed in Bihar in April 2016.
