Kainth's statement can leave Bihar's Mahagathbandhan leaders red-faced as is a partner in the ruling alliance which also includes Nitish Kumar's JD(U) and Lalu Prasad's RJD.



Speaking to PTI, Kainth said the SAD-BJP-ruled state has seen a spike in the cases of murder, attempt to and other such criminal activities.

"The way and order has deteriorated in Punjab, it appears the state has become 'Hatya ki Rajdhani'- capital of murders," he said, alleging Sukhbir is "not concerned about and order.

"He is busy spending public money on advertisements to earn praise from the people," he said.

"At least he (Sukhibr) should tell the people if he is turning into Bihar? Like in Bihar, the and order in has deteriorated. The government and the police have no control over it. The condition has never been like this," he said.

He alleged there is a "nexus" between the ruling class, police and criminals which is responsible for the state of affairs.

Referring to the Mansa incident, where a Dalit youth was murdered and his leg chopped off, Congress's spokesperson Sunil Jakhar said has "jungle raj"- a jibe often used by the Opposition to target the government in Bihar.

State spokesperson, Rajat Kumar Mohindur, has however refuted the Congress's charges, saying the "and order situation in is good and there is nothing to worry".
