Congress has given Bihar CM Nitish Kumar a clean chit in the case of the medical nightmare where over 133 children have died in the Encephalitis outbreak.
Newly inducted leader Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday said absolved the Bihar CM of any mistakes and demanded answers from Prime Minister Narendra Modi instead.

"I appreciate the chief minister for going there and saying that if they had come 10 days earlier then in terms of cleanliness, number of availability of doctors and health care facilities things would have improved. The way he has thrown light on the issues, I can say, der aaye durust aaye, (better late than never), and it is laudable," Sinha said.
Pointing the finger at PM Modi, he wrote about the recent deaths of children as well as deaths due to the heatwave in Bihar and called it a national calamity.
