Patna: On Saturday, the BJP-led NDA released a 'report card' on the completion of one year of the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar and said the dispensation has proved to be a big "failure" on all fronts, especially so on law and order.
Releasing the 'report card' titled 'Ek Saal, Bura Haal', senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi launched a scathing attack on the maha-gathbandhan government saying it has been in news for "all wrong reasons" in the past one year.
"The situation in Bihar has become worse in just one year... We (NDA leaders) have come out with a report card one day in advance, so that the Chief Minister can answer our questions," Modi told reporters here.
The Nitish-led government, in which Lalu Prasad's RJD and the Congress are allies, completes a year in office tomorrow and it would also present its report card showcasing its achievements.
The practice of presenting report cards every year was started by Nitish Kumar in 2006 after he became Chief Minister in November 2005.
The Chief Minister should present a report card of one year and not of 11 years as BJP was also the part of the government for around seven-and-half-year when the government earned laurels globally, while now this state government has earned name for all wrong reasons in the past one year, Sushil said.
Union minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan, Union Minister of State and RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha, Hindustani Awam Morcha(S) president and former chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi and other senior BJP leaders including state BJP chief Mangal Pandey were also present on the occasion.
Sushil Modi said had the Opposition not objected and raised the issues of bail granted to Shahabuddin, Raj Ballabh Yadav and Rocky Yadav, the state government would not have gone to the Supreme Court against them.
"Why is agriculture, health, education and industries missing from the CM's 'Nischay'?" he asked, while seeking answers to what happened to the Rs 1.52 lakh crore 'agriculture roadmap', 'Mission Manav Vikas', 'Mahadalit Vikas Mission' and 'Vision Document 2025'.
Sushil also termed Kumar's students' credit card scheme a repackaging of the Centre's scheme.
