BJP has assured the students from Bihar about their safety in Rajasthan after its party MLA Bhawani Singh accused Bihari students of ‘spoiling’ the atmosphere in Kota.
BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain said, “Students from Bihar will be safe in Kota, no one will make them leave.”
Bhawani Singh had demanded that the students from Bihar be driven out of Kota even after a student from Bihar was allegedly murdered by a group of local students.
“Students from Bihar are spoling the atmosphere of the city and they must be driven out of the city,” Singh had said.
According to PTI, Satyarth (19), a resident of Nabada district in Bihar, was allegedly attacked by a group of students yesterday while Sandeep Kumar, also from Bihar, sustained injuries in the attack.
Singh told ANI, “A list should be prepared of all Bihari students enrolled with various coaching centres and their background should be ascertained. If this situation prevails, there is no doubt one of them might become another Kanhaiya Kumar (JNUSU leader) and will indulge in anti-national activities.”
Local police have booked 25 people in connection with the murder, but no arrests had been made, police said.
Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Tejashwi Prasad Yadav today wrote a letter to Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje requesting her to take cognizance of the incident and make sure that the culprits responsible for this mindless atrocious act are nabbed soon.
Expressing concern over the incident, he termed the killing of student as a dastardly act.
“I would like to believe that this incident would be last of its kind against students of Bihar and you with your administration there, would leave no stone unturned to make sure that students from all over the country feel safe and secure in the state of Rajasthan,” he said.
“Such incidents would not only lead to a sense of insecurity among the students residing in Kota but will send wrong signals to their parents in far off places across the nation, he added.
