BJP’s prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday visited the families of those who killed in the Patna serial blasts. After meeting the families, Modi said that he was amazed to see the patience of Bihar people and would like to salute them for this brave act.

After trying hard to meet all the families of victims, Gujarat Chief Minister missed two families. But, did not forget to mention about them in his speech after the tour.

Modi’s whirlwind tour began at 7 am in Patna and ended at 3 pm in Nalanda district, the native district of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Modi boarded a helicopter on Saturday morning to visit the native villages of all six Patna serial blasts victims in Patna, Kaimur, Gopalganj, Supaul, Begusarai and Nalanda districts.

The Gujarat Chief Minister also handed over a cheque of Rs five lakh to the families of those dead in serial blasts.

This is the second time in a week that Modi has been meeting the grieving families to express his personal condolences to them for the death of their kins in the serial blasts during BJP's 'Hunkar Rally' in the state capital on October 27.

On Friday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar alleged that efforts were being made to disturb harmony.

"Bihar has been a land of harmony ... everybody knows that efforts are being made to disturb this," Kumar told reporters on BJP's 'Asathi Kalash Yatra'.

"Those making efforts to disturb peace can continue with their nefarious acts ... people will foil their attempts which aims to derail the development process," Kumar said.
