Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party leader Giriraj Singh on Sunday said that the party will not celebrate Diwali in Bihar due to the Patna serial blasts on October 27, which claimed six lives.
The Bihar BJP leader said that the party will not celebrate Diwali and pray for the victims and their families.
Six people were killed and more than 80 injured when half a dozen bombs exploded in Patna Sunday morning, most of them in and around the sprawling Gandhi Maidan where Narendra Modi later addressed a huge rally.
Most of those killed and injured were activists or supporters of the BJP.
Modi yesterday met the families of six persons killed in serial bomb blasts at his rally to offer his condolences and said he stood by them in this hour of grief.
Modi assured the family members all help from the party during his visit to their homes in four different districts of Bihar including Nalanda, which is the home district of Chief Minister and his bete noire Nitish Kumar.
