Union Home Minister Amit Shah praised Sashastra Seema Bal’s contribution to the fight against Naxalism on Saturday, saying that as a result of their “difficult fight,” Naxalism has been eradicated from the Bihar and Jharkhand areas.

Today in Kishanganj, Shah, who is visiting Bihar for two days, opened five SSB Border Out Posts. “SSB jawans have put up a valiant struggle against the northeast’s rife Naxalism. Naxalism is therefore close to dying out in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand; in fact, one might argue that it has already done so “Speaking on the occasion, Shah added.

The Home Minister acknowledged their responsibility and stated that due to the open border with Nepal and Bhutan, the SSB has the most difficult task to do.

“Sitting in Delhi, one would assume that your task is straightforward because we have cordial connections with both countries (Nepal and Bhutan). However, as one approaches the border, we realise that because it’s an open border, you have the toughest responsibility “explained he.

“An open border increases the duty. Even though neighbours have amicable connections and no ill will, there are certain people in society who utilise free borders to engage in illegal activity such as smuggling, animal smuggling, or infiltration “Shah further added.

Shah prayed earlier today at the Budhi Kali Mata Temple in Kishanganj’s Subhashpally Chowk.

The state’s citizens would “wipe out the Lalu-Nitish combo” in the federal elections of 2024, according to Shah, who spoke about Nitish Kumar at the ‘Jan Bhavna Mahasabha’ event on Friday. The party will then take power in the state in 2025, he said.

Speaking to the Jana Bhavna Mahasabha in Purnea, Bihar, Shah stated, “You (Bihar CM Nitish Kumar) had just two Lower House seats in 2014; “naa ghar ke rahe the, naa ghaat ke.” Let the LS elections in 2024 take place; the Lalu-Nitish team will lose to the Bihar people. In 2025 elections, we’re going to be in control here with a complete majority “.

Shah said that Nitish Kumar does not support any particular political philosophy and will work with any party to maintain power.

“Nitish Kumar opposes all political ideologies. Nitish Ji might go from socialism to Lalu Ji and engage in caste-based politics. Nitish Ji is free to abandon socialism and join Congress and the Left. He could possibly defect from RJD and join BJP. Nitish just has one rule: my chair must be in place,” he explained.

According to the Home Minister, Bihar is at risk of becoming a “jungle-raj.”
