The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his "conspiracy theory" remarks on the mid-day meal tragedy.

According to reports, Nitish Kumar told Janata Dal-United (JD-U) workers that the mid-day meal was deliberately laced with pesticide.

BJP spokesperson Syed Shahnawaz Hussain slammed the chief minister for his comments and said the government cannot blame the opposition for its failure.

"Nitish Kumar has forgotten he is not just a JD-U leader but the chief minister of Bihar," Hussain told reporters here.

"They cannot take the credit for the good work and blame the opposition for all the bad things that happen," he said.

He also slammed Bihar Education Minister P.K. Sahi, who said he cannot guarantee that such incidents do not happen again.

"The education minister is saying he cannot guarantee that similar incident is not repeated; in that case, he has no right to be a minister," Hussain said.

Sahi earlier said: "As a minister, how can I guarantee that in 72,000 schools across the state, there won't be any poison in the food if somebody is hell bent on doing so?"
