"Those who took the entire nation for a ride by offering milk to Lord Ganesha do such things to test the effectiveness of their rumour mills," Kumar said.

"With the help of social media they spread rumours about scarcity of salt which led people into panic buying," he said, adding that the government controlled the situation within two hours after learning about it.

Kumar also referred to senior BJP leader Sushil Modi "chiding party workers for not calling media persons in adequate number" during his tour to Hajipur to meet injured in the Patna blasts and claimed that the former deputy CM was competing with BJP prime minister Narendra Modi for limelight.

"They have no genuine sympathy for victims of the blasts .... Their only aim is to draw media attention," he claimed.
