Nitish jab at Centre

Chief minister Nitish Kumar criticised the Centre on Wednesday for floundering on sensitive issues in Punjab and kickback charges in defence deals.

The Centre has not been able to manage the issues, Nitish said, adding: The Shiromani Akali Dal is a responsible political party and its leader, Parkash Singh Badal, is a senior politician. It is essential for the country that Punjab remains peaceful.

The Punjab government on Tuesday grappled with a courts refusal to halt the weekend execution of Balwant Singh Rajoana in the Beant Singh assassina-tion case.

On the controversy surrounding army chief V.K. Singh, Nitish said: Defence minister A.K. Antony should have taken action when the matter of offering bribe was brought to his notice.

Nitish said he would not write to Union human resource development minister Kapil Sibal again on the location of the Central University Bihar.
