A Bihar villager has filed a petition against BJP leader L.K. Advani, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his JD-U colleague Sharad Yadav for breach of trust in beguiling him into voting for the NDA in the state elections on the promise of better governance.
But there was no evidence that the situation had gotten any better with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government of Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader Nitish Kumar, said Satyabrat alias Kumud Lal, who filed his case on Monday in the court of the chief judicial magistrate in Ara, the district headquarters of Bhojpur, 60 km from Patna.
Satyabrat, from Bhojpur's Bara Kharaauni village, cited criminal breach of trust,cheating and conspiracy in his petition.
He stated that the three leaders had said at an election in rally in 2005 that 'jungle raj' prevailed in the state during the Rashtriya Janata Dal government led by Rabri Devi. "Influenced by them, I had voted for the National Democratic Alliance in view that their statement was true," he said, adding that the there was no evidence that the situation was better after the NDA came to power.
The NDA leaders had promised a crime free Bihar within three months and rule of law during the election campaign for assembly polls, he said, pleading for action against the three.
The court has admitted the case for hearing later this month.
