Lambasting the NDA government in Bihar, Congress today said the killing of 12 people at Phulwaria Korasi village in Jamui district has proved beyond doubt that Maoists were ruling the roost in rural areas and the state machinery had no control over them.

Bihar PCC president Anil Kumar Sharma said the Nitish Kumar government had failing to initiate adequate measures against the ultras killing innocent people in rural parts of the state.

The chief minister should provide compensation and a government job to one member of the family of each person killed by the Naxalites, he said.

Sharma also charged the state government with not utilising the central fund made available to the state to counter the naxal menace.
