The Congress on Friday said it would soon come out with a 'chargesheet' against the present governance for making "hollow" claims on the law and order situation in the state.
"We will go to the people's court with facts and figures and present chargesheet against the Nitish Kumar government as the tall claims being made on improvement of law and order front are hollow," AICC general secretary in-charge Mukul Wasnik and the state party president Choudhry Mehboob Ali Kaiser told reporters on Patna.
They alleged that during the present rule, women were not safe and contrary to the claims of the state government, cases of kidnapping have increased.
The incidents of atrocities on Dalits too have increased in Bihar, Wasnik, also the Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, said.
While the all India conviction rate of cases related to atrocities on Dalits was 32 per cent, Bihar stood at 17 per cent and several such cases are pending at court and police levels, he said.
The Congress leaders said the party had gone in election mode and was preparing from village to district levels.
"The decision to contest seats with like-minded parties would be taken by the central party leadership but we are preparing for all the 243 seats," Wasnik said.
Asked about the Congress party's stand on biennial elections to five Rajya Sabha seats, Wasnik said a final decision about party's stand would be taken after a discussion with the Congress Legislature party.
