Patna, Aug 6: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said baseless allegations have been made against State Social Welfare Department Minister Manju Verma over Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case.
“If someone related to the Minister is involved, they won’t be spared. But why is this issue being raised only now. We had called her and she denied any involvement”, the Chief Minister told media.
How is it justified to level baseless allegations?, Kumar asked.
Verma is under a cloud for gross negligence in ensuring proper functioning of the shelter homes. While her husband, a former MLC, has been also accused of often entering the Muzaffarpur shelter home.
Meanwhile, the Patna High Court sought a detailed action report on Muzaffarpur Shelter Home case from the CBI and Bihar government.
