High court terms rule of law in Patna as 'jungle'

Saturday January 15, 2011 05:16:12 PM, IANS

Patna: After over a decade, the Patna High Court has once again used the word 'jungle' while referring to the state of rule of law in this capital city.

"Patna is jungle, there is no rule of law here," the Patna High Court commented in reference to the government departments' style of functioning and mushrooming of apartment blocks in the city in violation of the rule of law.

The high court stricture gave the opposition leaders in Bihar an opportunity to question Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's claim of good-governance and rule of law.

"We demand the state government to reply to the court's remark," Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Ram Kirpal Yadav told IANS.

A high court bench headed by Justice Navin Sinha made the remark Thursday while hearing a petition filed by a Danapur resident, Madhav Rai, who sought stop to illegal construction of an apartment block in his locality.

Several years ago during the chief ministership of Rabri Devi of the RJD, the Patna High Court had described the law and order situation in Bihar as a "jungle raj". The high court comment was used as a major issue by the then opposition and now ruling NDA in the state for its political purposes.
