Patna: Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) leader Pappu Yadav, in the wake of the brutal murder of a 7-year old boy from Bihar at Gurgaon's Ryan International School, demanded a PIL filed against the school in Delhi High Court and nationalization of all schools and hospitals in the country.
Yadav, an MP from Madhepura, speaking at a press conference in Patna on Friday, said that what happened with the Class II student in Delhi was despicable and the guilty parties, including school officials, must be brought to justice without any delay.
Advocating nationalization of all schools and hospitals, Yadav, who spent a great deal of time in high-security Tihar Jail in Delhi for his role in the murder of a CPI-M leader in the '90s, said that if banks could be nationalized then so can hospitals and schools in the nation.
"Schools have become a money-minting enterprise for politicians and fake babas. They all need to be nationalized so they are not driven by profit motive that leads to incidents like these in Gurgaon school. Until schools and hospitals are nationalized, I will continue to take my fight from the Parliament to the streets of Bihar," the JAP leader said.
Yadav also took shot at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying after joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he forgot about his demand for special status for Bihar.
"I at least wrote a letter to the Prime Minister reminding him about Bihar's demand for special economic status. What have you done lately about it? Did you forget Prime Minister Modi's comment about your DNA saying something was very wrong with it? What happened to your promises," the former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and a protégé of Lalu Prasad Yadav said.
