Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has ordered officially to restrict offensive posts against Bihar government on all social media platforms. Bihar’s Economic Offences wing, agency in the charge of cybercrimes has asked in response to the order, all state departments to report any defamatory or wrong posts against MPs, MLAs or officials.

However, Opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav soon after this decision came into light, launched a blistering attack on Bihar CM by calling him “Bhishma Pitamaha of corruption” on Twitter.

He wrote in micro-blogging site, “The perpetrator of 60 scams, Nitish Kumar, the Bhishma Pitamaha of corruption, the protector of criminals, the weak chief of an immoral and unconstitutional government. Bihar police sells liquor. I challenge the Chief Minister to arrest me under this order.”

He also compared the Chief Minister with the Hitler, said: “Protesters cannot protest. Jail for those who write against the government. People are not allowed to take their complaints to the opposition leader… Nitish ji, we know you are completely tired, but have some shame.”

Bihar till now has been the only state on the history that have rarely reacted towards offensive views or comments especially on social media platforms. A letter written by the Chief Economic Offences wing, Nayyar Hasnain Khan to all secretaries of the state government said, “It has come to light that certain persons and organisations have been making defamatory and offensive comments on social media against the government, respected ministers, parliamentarians, legislators, and government officials.”
