PATNA: Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi today charged Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad with making Bihar a "haven of terrorists" with an eye on the vote of a particular community, remarks that assume significance ahead of polling in 112 assembly seats having a sizeable presence of minorities.

"Lalu-Nitish made Bihar a haven of terrorists with an eye on the voters of a particular community....a terrorist was dealt with softly because of his religion," he said in a series of tweets a day after BJP President had said in Raxaul that firecrackers will be burst in Pakistan if by mistake BJP is defeated in Bihar.

Modi was referring to the arrest of the outlawed terror outfit--Indian Mujahideen (IM) co-founder Yasin Bhatkal's arrest on the Indo-Nepal border over two years ago in Bihar's Madhubani district.

Claiming that the Bihar Police had refused to take Bhatkal into its custody, the senior BJP leader alleged that the Chief Minister had made the ADG Rajesh Chandra to return to the state capital from Muzaffarpur while he was going to Raxaul to  interrogate the IM co-founder.

The then Bihar DGP neither questioned Bhatkal nor took him into police remand before handing him over to the central agencies, Modi said. He alleged that dozens of districts of Bihar were converted into a nursery of terrorism during the 25 years rule of the RJD and the JD(U) and that the terror attacks in Bodh Gaya and Patna (during Modi's rally in Gandhi Maidan) was  due to the state government's indifferent towards terrorist activities in the state.

Modi charged the RJD supremo and senior JD(U) leader with jeopardising the security of the country for votes (of a particular community). "For votes, Lalu and Nitish can put the entire country at risk...what to talk of Bihar only," the BJP leader said in an attack on the secular alliance leaders.

Taking cue from the BJP national president Amit Shah's controversial remarks, Modi said that the BJP's win at in the Bihar assembly polls will be celebrated as Diwali in India, while if the secular alliance registered victory it will be celebrations in Pakistan. "If BJP wins in Bihar there will be Diwali in India and if UPA wins there will be celebration in Pak," he said.
