Patna/New Delhi, Aug. 21: Launching a scathing attack on the Janata Dal (United) for withdrawing the show cause notice issued to its two Bihar Ministers after they expressed regret over their controversial remarks on the killing of Indian soldiers along the LoC, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday alleged that the Nitish Kumar Government wants to be seen more closer to the Pakistani Army and the ISI than have a feeling for the patriots.
“And today, the notices that were served against these errant ministers of Mr. Nitish Kumar have been withdrawn. This is a shocking story and it seems that Mr. Nitish Kumar and his government in Bihar want to be seen more closer (sic) to Pakistani army, Pakistani ISI than have a feeling for the patriots in Bihar who died fighting the battle against the Pakistani soldiers,” BJP General Secretary Rajiv Pratap Rudy told media in Patna.
Meanwhile, Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav said that the notice had been withdrawn because he received a sincere apology from the two Ministers.
“I have seen the apology letter sent by them and I am glad that they are apologetic and that is why I have withdrawn the call for an inquiry,” he told media in New Delhi.
