Patna, November 2
The NDA ally Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) created a flutter on Monday when its leader Jitan Ram Manjhi demanded a judicial inquiry into the death of Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, pointing an accusing finger at LJP chief Chirag Paswan.
Chirag termed the demand a “plot” by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to discredit him. In an angry retort to Manjhi, he said the former CM should ask the PM about the issue. He said the PM used to call him up every day to enquire after his late father when he was sick and hospitalised. — PTI
