Patna: Spiritual `Guru` Sri Sri
Ravishankar on Sunday lavished praise on Bihar Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar and his Deputy Sushil Kumar Modi for improved law
and order situation and development in Bihar, but said much
more was needed to be done in this direction.

"I am glad that the people of Bihar move around freely
without any fear," he said at a function at the Veterinary
College in Sheikhpura locality.

Singling out Kumar and Modi for their works "in
ushering in development and improved law and order situation
in Bihar," Ravishankar said the duo should continue to do the
good works as much more was needed to be done to take the
backward state among the frontline of the developed ones.

Ravishankar appealed to the people to neither accept
bribe or give it to anybody to weed out the virus.

The spiritual guru also disapproved violence by the
naxalites "for whatsoever objective" and appealed to the
ultras to join the mainstream for their own good and that of
the society, he said and referred to the landmine blast by the
Naxalites in Jharkhand`s Garhwa district yesterday.

"The naxalites are misguided youths of our own society
who have taken to the path of violence in pursuance of their
ideology for social change, but they are wrong if they think
that they could achieve their goal through arms," he said.

Ravishankar said three Maoists had consented to
surrender before him today, but could not do so finally
without stating the reasons.
