Centre seeks report on Patna blast, rushes NIA team

The Home Ministry today sought a report from the Bihar government on the explosion of a crude bomb in Patna and is sending a team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) to assist in further investigations.

Concerned over the blast at the Patna Railway Station and recovery of two more crude bombs, the Ministry told the state government to send a report about the nature of the bomb, suspected persons or organisations which could be behind it and steps taken to maintain law and order, official sources said.

The Centre also decided to send a team of explosive experts of the NIA to help the Bihar police in post-blast investigation, they said.

A bomb exploded in a toilet at Patna railway station today injuring a person while two more bombs were recovered from the area, barely kilometers away from Gandhi Maidan where BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will be addressing a rally.

  1. How exactly , Narendrabhai ?

    In your “ Hunkar “ rally at Patna yesterday , you said ,

    “ Poor hindus and poor musalmans should not fight each other . They should join hands to fight poverty……

    When Congress fought 2009 elections , it promised jobs . How many of you got those promised jobs ? “

    True , for over 55 years , successive Congress governments have been busy in “ Garibi Hatao “ – without success

    So what did they do ?

    Re-draw the Garibi-Rekha ( Poverty Line ) at Rs 27/day in urban areas , to give an impression that very few people in India , are “ really poor “

    Even then , this works out to 400 million people ! By their own twisted standard

    If I were to assume that BJP’s garibi rekha is , at a more respectable , Rs 100 per day , then this figure could well go over 700 million people !

    Exact figures are unimportant

    What is more important is ,

    “ How do you pull these poor , out of poverty ? “

    There are only 2 ways , viz:,

     Create jobs

     Enable poor to become self-employed

    Now , even though you don’t have a Ph D in Economics ( thank God ! ), you are a hard-headed Gujju businessman !

    On top of that , you started your own career as a “ Self employed tea vendor “ on railway stations and in trains

    So you know what it costs ( by way of capital investment + working capital ) to create just ONE job in the economy

    Depending upon , whether that job is in Public Sector / Large organized Private Sector / Medium sized industry / Roadside retail grocery shop or a Pan-Beedi dukaan of a self employed , the figure would range from Rs 10 Crores / job to Rs 10,000 for a Pan-Beedi shop !

    ( If in doubt , take Annual Report of any Tata / Adani / Ambani / Birla company and divide the Capital Employed by Manpower )

    Now pick your own favorite figure ( per job investment ) and multiply with your own ( convenient ? ) figure of 700 million poor people , desperately wanting to “ fighting poverty “

    In BJP’s poll manifesto , will you please mention , where you will find the money required to fulfill your promise ? I hope , you will not raise taxes !

    How exactly , Narendrabhai ?

    Hint :

    Read my Poll Manifesto Suggestions , sent to Shri Murli Manohar Joshi , 3 days back !
