Patna, Jul 13: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today accused BJP of trying to create "communal tension" in the state to "polarize" people on "communal lines" in the upcoming Assembly polls scheduled for later this year.
"The BJP is trying to create communal tension in Bihar at local level in the districts on some pretext or other," the Chief Minister told reporters here.
"In some places, there are issues related to pork being thrown to provoke certain community and in other places different things are being done to incite communal tension," he said.
"Wherever we detect an incident aimed at creating communal tension in the state, we immediately get on work to neutralize it," the chief minister said.
Charging the BJP with fooling the people by swaying them to vote for it in the name of development and other promises, Kumar said that the saffron party would go in the similar manner in which it had come to power at the Centre.
