Mrs. Rabri Devi, the Chief Minister of Bihar, certainly has a flair for shooting her mouth off when things get too complicated for her. Instead of showing any sympathy for the family of the kidnapped victim, the CM, on the first day of the winter session of the Assembly, said that the BJP MLA Pradeep Das was hiding his nephew in his own home while fabricating the kidnapping story.

The statement brought the entire opposition members in the state assembly on their feet who wanted the Chief Minister to apologize for making such insensitive statement. Things got so heated that the Speaker of the House Sadanand Singh had to adjourn the Question Hour way ahead of its schedule.

Das' nephew was kidnapped from Purnia on October 2 and still remains missing after nearly two months.

Lambasting the administration, the leader of the Opposition and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi said under Laloo-Rabri rule, no one is safe including the MLAs and their family members.

Surprisingly. there was no mention of the alleged abduction of Kanchan Mishra by the notorious criminal Sultan Mian who is said to have performed 'nikah' with Mishra against her will. One can reasonably understand the silence maintained by the Laloo-Rabri government on the issue but the Bhartiya Janata Party's absolute mum on the shameful event has almost been deafening to those who had been following the story. Even on the streets of Patna, nobody seems to have heard the story of Mishra's abduction leading many to doubt the authenticity of the story. So far only Outlook India, a news magazine, has published the story.
