Patna(Bihar) [India], Oct. 21 (ANI): The Janata Dal (United) on Friday brushed aside the 'baseless' allegations levelled against the ruling grand alliance in Bihar by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Modi and said that the Nitish Kumar-led government has always fulfilled its duty with responsibility.

"Be it any matter, the government has put forth its stand very firmly and Sushil Modi ji is levelling baseless allegations. On June 6, the district administration asked the court ion Gaya for a speedy trial of the case,"JD (U) spokesperson Neeraj Kumar told ANI.

"The government has done its work with full responsibility. We neither trap anybody nor save anybody. The government will do its work. The state government did their research firmly and presented their side. Now, the matter has been taken to the Supreme Court and its decision will be accepted by all. The state government supports the victim's family," he added.

Training guns at the grand alliance, Modi earlier asked as to why the Bihar Government, which has moved the Supreme Court for bail cancellation of Raj Ballabh Yadav chose not to involve a renowned lawyer to fight its case, when the latter has hired the services of noted lawyers like Siddharth Luthra and R. Basant.

"The state government is under pressure following the meeting between Lalu ji and Raj Ballabh and that's the reason why they have not involved any top lawyer to challenge Raj Ballabh's bail," he said.

Modi also alleged that the Bihar Government was always taking a soft stand and assisting accused instead of the victim.

He said that criminals in the state were openly getting political patronage and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was busy in fulfilling his prime ministerial aspirations. (ANI)
