"Any incident of terrorism is a cause of worry. But if on the basis of one or two incidents Bihar is called a haven of terrorism, what shall we say about several such incidents happening in Gujarat and other parts of the country?” Nitish asked.
"Everybody knows who benefited from the serial blasts at the Patna rally, which was a flop. Had this unfortunate incident not happened, it could not have attracted media coverage," he claimed.

Hitting back at Modi, the senior Janata Dal (United) leader said some people see everything through the glass of communalism.

Nitish said that his government had taken the terrorist attack at the Buddhist temple at Bodh Gaya and at the BJP’s rally in Patna on October 27 last year as a challenge, and added that several steps were taken to prevent recurrence of such events.
"But playing politics in the name of terrorism when elections are around the corner is a shameless effort," he said while speaking to reporters after a foundation-laying ceremony for a road project in Patna.
