BJP hits back at opposition for criticising Narendra Modi`s Patna visit

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi criticised the opposition for attacking the party`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.



New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday criticised the opposition for attacking the party`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, after he visited the family members of the Patna serial blast victims.

"The blasts that happened in Patna were terror attack. And if Narendra Modi has gone to Patna to visit the victims, where is it written that this is wrong?" he questioned.

The opposition has maintained that Modi`s Patna visit is politically motivated.

Earlier in the day, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader Ali Anwar said: "Where was Modi that time? After the rally, Modi could have gone to the hospital to see the victims."

Congress leader Rashid Alvi asked why Modi did not visit Muzaffarnagar where more than 60 people were killed in communal clashes last month.

Modi, who arrived in Patna on November 01, met the families of the six people on Saturday, who were killed in serial blasts ahead of his massive `Hunkar` rally on October 27.

Four people have been arrested in the case so far, while several others have been detained.
