BJP takes out Shahid Asthi Yatra for victims

He said that the Gujarat Chief Minister would give Rs 5 lakh compensation cheque to each victim family during his visit.

The BJP on Thursday started “Shahid Asthi Yatra” of six people killed in the Sunday Patna serial bomb blasts ahead of party prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s visit to the city on Friday evening.

Modi,who is declared state guest as a matter of protocol,would visit the victims’ families at Patna,Nalanda,Kaimur,Gopalganj,Begusarai and Supaul to offer condolences.

BJP legislature party leader and former deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi told The Indian Express,“We have started Asthi Yatra from respective villages of the victims to be taken across to at least five adjoining districts before urns are brought to get immersed in Ganga here.”

Sushil Modi,who met families of blast victim Bharat Rajak at Supaul,said there had been huge public resentment over poor law and order situation in the state,especially security lapses during Narendra Modi’s Patna rally.

He said that the Gujarat Chief Minister would give Rs 5 lakh compensation cheque to each victim family during his visit.
