Bihar: Making an announcement regarding the shelter homes in the state after the consecutive incidents, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that no shelter homes will be run by NGOs instead government will provide buildings and other infrastructure to run them.
Speaking with the media at a public interaction programme ‘Lok Samvaad’, Nitish went on to say: “Now no shelter home will be run by NGOs and the government will provide building and other infrastructure to run them.”
He reiterated that those involved in the Muzaffarpur shelter home rapes case would not be spared at any cost and would be sent to jail.
“If someone at the minister level is found to be involved, they too will be punished”, he said.
Senior State BJP leader C.P. Thakur had demanded the resignation of State Social Welfare Minister Manju Verma in connection with the case.
“The scandal points to huge lapses on the part of the social welfare department… how could the department be unaware of such a huge racket taking place right under its nose?”, he said.
