Patna, Oct 22 (UNI) Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today appealed to agitating students to shun violence and stop damaging railway property in the state as it was sending a ''wrong signal'' to outside world about the true image of Bihar and ''diluting the real issue of unabated attacks on Bihari students in Maharashtra ''.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Mr Kumar said those resorted to violence and vandalism to vent their anger over the incidents in Maharshtara were only ''weakening the case of Bihar''.
'' We have asked the Mahatashtra Government to take stern action immediately against all those indulged in violence and attacks on Bihari students, '' he said adding the Centre had also been requested to intervene if suitable measures were not taken to ensure safety and security to Biharis in Maharshtra.
'' I have also talked to Union Home Minister and informed him about the repercussion of Maharashtra incidents in Bihar and urged him to take steps to ensure security of Biharis in that state, '' Mr Kumar said adding he would soon write a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in this regard.
Seeking cooperation from all corners in ensuring peace and normalcy in the state, the Chief Minister said the state government had convened an all party meeting on october 24 to discuss the issue threadbare and evolve a consensus for protecting the interest of the people of Bihar.
