Amid the organization of the government’s statewide human chain event in Bihar on Sunday, Congress put up posters across Patna, highlighting the failures of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Criticising the regime’s ‘Jal, Jeevan, Hariyali’ programme, the posters allege that problems such as dowry-related deaths, loot, corruption, rapes, brain drain, and unemployment persist throughout the state of Bihar. Moreover, Congress also issued a reminder that Bihar had failed to get 'special status' under Nitish Kumar. The posters also urge the people of the state to “stay awake”.

Creating awareness against social evils

In the past, the Bihar government had organized a human chain event in the support of the stringent prohibition policy in 2017. On this occasion, the motive of the government is to create awareness about conserving the environment, the prohibition policy and against social evils such as child marriage and dowry. According to the government, lakhs of people were expected to participate in the event. Earlier in the day, CM Nitish Kumar and Deputy CM Sushil Modi themselves joined the human chain.
