Rudy blames Nitish for Patna blasts
BJP general secretary Rajiv Pratap Rudy attacked the Nitish Kumar government over its failure to avert Sunday’s serial blasts in Patna and alleged that it was a complete failure of the state government and its machinery, rather a criminal neglect of the situation on their part, despite the apprehensions earlier expressed by the party.
Six people were killed and over 80 injured on Sunday in a string of explosions that took place at Patna railway station and Gandhi Maidan, shortly before BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi spoke at a rally.
Addressing a press conference to highlight Patna’s serial blasts across the country here on Tuesday, Rudy alleged that though the Intelligence Bureau alerted Bihar government on October 23 about a likely blast in Modi’s rally the state government ignored it and did not took adequate measures to avert the blasts. “When a person like Modi, who has the highest threat from terror organisations, is addressing a rally, more precaution had to be taken. But the Bihar government failed in its duty,” he alleged.
