Patna: In an escalation of war of words between the former NDA allies over serial blasts at the rally of Narendra Modi in Patna, JD(U) on Wednesday questioned the "close relationship" between BJP rallies, yatras and bomb blasts.
"Why there is a close relationship between BJP rallies, yatras and bomb blasts," Bihar JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar said in a statement.
People say BJP opened its account in Karnataka when there were explosions in their election meetings, he said in a cascading remark on the former ally which was also firing salvos at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the serial blasts during Modi`s October 27 rally.
"In the explosions outside BJP office in Bengaluru before the last general elections, SIM card used in the blasts were of a prominent leader of the RSS. Likewise, BJP`s jan chetna yatra, which otherwise was a flop show, hogged the limelight when a pipe bomb was found in Madurai," he alleged.
"The BJP owes an answer as to how six dreaded terrorists managed to escape from high security Khandwa jail in Madhya Pradesh, who also stabbed two state police personnel near the house of a minister while fleeing," Kumar said.
The JD(U) spokesman said "BJP was adept in using terrorism as a political weapon, but should answer to the country about the attacks on Parliament, Akshardham temple and Samjhauta Express during its tenure."
