Submitted by Subeditor on Tue, 2015-12-15 19:33 Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday trained his gun at the Centre over the CBI raid on the Delhi Secretariat, saying it sends an extremely wrong message to democracy.The Janata Dal (United) leader dubbed the CBI raid as “bizarre” as it was conducted without taking the Chief Minister into confidence.“The decorum between the state and the Centre is getting lost. This is unbelievable. There is a way to do things. There must be probe. Did the Chief Minister know about the raid? If the cases are old, then it is all the more bizarre,” Nitish told the media here.“Our democracy lies in trusting each other. Everything must be considered before doing any such thing. It sends an extremely wrong message to democracy. All these things should be considered and it's such a bizarre situation which cannot be supported,” he added.Nitish's support for Kejriwal came hours after his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee also expressed her apprehension over the CBI raid.
