Patna, Feb 18: Terming the violence in front of the state BJP headquarters by the student wings of ruling alliance partners as a 'state-sponsored one', Bihar BJP president Mangal Pandey today said that NDA workers are ready to take on the goons of ruling parties anywhere in the state.
"This is a state sponsored attack on BJP office today, the conspiracy for which was hatched at JDU office... This is Nitish Kumar government's state sponsored attack," Pandey told reporters here.
Pandey, who expressed displeasure over the administration remaining "a mute spectator", told the attackers that NDA and BJP workers would pay them in the same coin.
He said that attackers were from AISF, JDU, RJD student wings who had come with lathi, bottles and sticks.
"We want to carry out our political fight in democratic way but if the ruling JDU wants to push Bihar into a state of political violence, then BJP and NDA workers would not sit idle as impotent. Rather we will pay them back in the same coin. Every action will have reaction," he said.
"They (attackers) should not attack or carry out fight from behind...If they have guts, they should choose time and place of their choice and BJP and NDA workers are ready to take them on in their language (violence) anywhere in the state," said the state chief who was accompanied by state BJP vice president Sanjay Mayukh and others.
Pandey said the administration did not allow its party workers to take out 'Jan Swabhiman Yatra' while the protesters were allowed to come to BJP office despite Mayukh informing the concerned official that the party apprehended attack on its office.
