The government in Bihar has changed but the fate of Bihar and its people is as similar as it was earlier. The social structure of Bihar has reached at very dangerous level. Before Lalu’s rule, the so-called upper caste people were dominating the society as well as state government.
Then the change of the government in favor of Lalu yadav had shown the poorer and backward people a new hope that time of their development has finally come. But all this ended in a bad maner and the rule of a specific caste has started. The people of the lowest stream of the society did find themselves in almost the same situation. Some other group of caste was exploiting them at that time. The truth was that they were being targeted again.
Now lalu’s rule has ended the time changed but not the fate of poor Biharis. Bihar has witnessed at least three other attacks against Dalits in this month only. The police administration became active but only when the Chief Minister has intervened in to the matter.
Here are the details of some recent incidents–
# Seven Dalit women in Suryagarha in Lakhisarai district have alleged for been raped people of upper caste on August 7.They also made charges against police that they refused to lodge an FIR.
# four Dalit youth was killed in an upper-caste village of Bhojpur allegedly in the presence of the local police. The youth were accused of stealing cows.
# An eye of a 10-year-old Dalit boy was gouged out with a sharp weapon allegedly by upper-caste men in Dhabouli village of Begusarai. It was reported that his parents had not voted for an upper caste candidate in the panchayat polls and the men of that candidate did the act.
The Bihar CM Nitish Kumar is trying hard to establish law and order in Bihar but he will have to show greater will-power to restrict these kinds of shameful acts.
