Patna: Bihar PCC chief Choudhary Mehboob Ali Kaiser on Saturday described as 'blatant lie' the diplomatic cable release about Union Home Minister P Chidambaram reported remarks that India would have made more progress if it had only southern and western parts.

"The cable release quoting Chidambaram is highly objectionable and a blatant lie," he told reporters here.

Kaiser, however, said any comment be it from Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray or anybody else aimed at hurting the sentiments of people of northern parts of India would be treated as 'unfortunate and condemnable'.

Referring to the coming panchayat polls in Bihar, he said Congress favoured holding the elections on party basis and would field candidates supported by it.

A special task force had been constituted to identify candidates, Kaiser added.
