Ramgarh, Oct 31 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today came down heavily on the Centre, alleging that lack of proper policies was giving rise to terrrorism and ''enthusing'' anti-social elements to foster disharmony in the country.
Mr Kumar also made a scathing attack on MNS chief Raj Thackeray, saying, ''Such people, in the name of Marathi sentiments, are trying to create a divide between north and south India.'' Referring to the ongoing atrocities against Hindi speaking people in Maharashtra, particularly the kiling of a Bihari youth Rahul Raj in police encounter in Mumbai recently, Mr Kumar said if such things had taken place in Bihar, he would have shown the MNS chief the ''right path''.
The Bihar Chief Minister was here to inaugurate 'Patel Chatrabas' to mark the 133rd anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
''Why will people not go to Mumbai as the city possess RBI head office, big national and multinational companies, industries and obviously the flow of money,'' he said and warned that if Mr Thackeray wanted that no north Indian should go there, then the ''money from this region also should not go there''.
Expressing concern over the episode of killing of the Bihari youth by the Maharashtra police, Mr Kumar said the boy was alone inside the bus with a pistol and he could have been easily caught and interrogated.
The Maharashtra government was not handling the matter judiciously, he alleged, adding that the Centre was also turning a blind eye towards the issue.
''Immediately after the incident, all political parties sat together and urged Prime Minister Manmohan singh to take action but no satisfactory initiative has been noticed as yet,'' the Chief Minister said.
He reiterated that the Centre had ''no visionary policy to restore confidence among the countrymen, which subsequently helped give rise to terrorism and anti-social activities.'' UNI XC-PRS DPM GT RAI2052
