Patna, May 3 (UNI) Senior BJP leader C P Thakur today urged the Union Home Ministry to work in coordination with the Bihar government to combat growing maoists' attacks here.
After visiting Jandaha in Vaishali district where maoists had attacked a bank and police station, Dr Thakur, also a former Union Minister, told newspersons here that maoism was more of a problem of the Central Government than the State Government.
'' Bihar had become the main part of the red corridor developed by the Maoists,'' he said and alleged that the Centre was 'unfortunately' not alive to the situation. Instead of passing the buck on to the State Government, the Union Home Minister should immediately visit the state and hold meetings with the authorities to solving the menace, he observed.
Leading the fact finding team of the BJP, Dr Thakur said the maoists attack on Jandaha was a part of a big game to destabilise the country when it was becoming a world economic power.
He said the Eastern and western fronts were already disturbed and the maoists were now disturbing the Northern front, which had a long border with Nepal.
Dr Thakur, however, lauded the efforts of the police and people in combating the Maoists attack at Jandaha and said the police stations of the state should be modernised. He also suggested the State Government to enhance security of the common people.
He said the recent announcement made by the Railway Ministry for suspending plying of trains during night hours in the maoists affected area was unfortunate and should be withdrawan immediately.
