Bihar University girls can now report sexual-harassment to Raj Bhavan
Bihar Governor Satya Pal Mallik asking girls studying in Bihar universities to report directly to the Raj Bhavan any complaints of molestation or sexual harassment on campuses has triggered a political spat between opposition RJD and ruling JD(U).
Leader of the opposition in the assembly Tejashwi Yadav today claimed that this was a reflection on the shameful law and order situation in Bihar.

Here is the tweet by the opposition leader
अति-शर्मनाक!— Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) June 15, 2018
राज्यपाल महोदय जानते है कि नीतीश राज में क़ानून व्यवस्था की शर्मनाक स्थिति है। सीएम के अधीन गृह विभाग भ्रष्टाचार की दलदल में डूबा हुआ है।
अब आप समझ लीजिये बिहार में क्या हालात होंगे जब राज्यपाल महोदय को हस्तक्षेप कर ख़ुद महिला उत्पीड़न पर संज्ञान लेना पड़ रहा है। https://t.co/dBHdEqj0EC

Entire Bihar remembers terror, lawlessness during 15-year RJD rule: JD(U)
Janata Dal (United), headed by the CM, reacted angrily to Yadav's allegations.
"RJD leaders are trying to act too smart. Entire Bihar remembers the terror and lawlessness they had to suffer while the party enjoyed power in Bihar for 15 years. The Governor is not separate from the government and his utterance only underscored the government's sensitivity," JD(U) spokesman and MLC Neeraj Kumar said.
