The crime trajectory in the first six months of this year is similar to that in 2019.
While Nitish Kumar is reminding people of the jungle-raj under the Lalu Prasad regime before 2005, Tejashwi Yadav of the RJD has made law and order the centrepiece of his campaign, along with highlighting the unemployment in the state. “The state’s own figures show that Nitish Kumar has failed as the home minister as well and he is directly responsible,” RJD spokesman Nawal Kishore said.
Robberies have risen by almost 70% from 1,410 in 2016 to 2,399 last year. “Bihar has seen heinous crimes like the Muzzafarpur child shelter sexual abuse case and Gopalganj killings,” Kishore said.
Nitish Kumar has countered this by citing the National Crime Records Bureau report-2018 saying that going by crime rate, Bihar ranks far lower than other states.

During RJD rule, the cases were not reported, police didn't cared to file FIRs, as only criminals were ministers and Lalluji is in jail today, though it's different thing that he enjoys 5star treatment there in jail. The talks of Shahbuddin and Lallji is not old just few years back, when Shahabuddin dialed to Lalluji.
During full fledged government of RJD, during marriage of Lalluji kin; brand new cars were forcefully taken by goons of Lalluji (not RJD because, such parties are far from politics and are always found playing DIRTY POLITICS, I am surprised, shocked and astonished, how Lalluji fooled Bihar for so many years ?
