BJP on Sunday targeted its former ally Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the serial blasts in Bodh Gaya, questioning why his government had not acted on specific intelligence inputs that the Buddhist temple may be targeted by terrorists.

BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said that IB, Delhi police and Pune blast accused had said the Bodh Gaya temple will be attacked by terrorists as a revenge for the attacks on Muslims in Myanmar.

Hussain charged that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was "overloaded" with work as he was handling 18 ministries.

"Moreover, he is busy with protocol everyday as some Union Congress minister visits him. His time is spent in receiving them and having lunch with them. This is followed by a mutual admiration session," Hussain said.

BJP alleged that after a visit to the blast site, Kumar should have held a meeting with his officials.

Instead he met JD(U) leaders.

"The CM is using his official residence for party work. More than caring for the Janata, he is concerned about saving the Janata Dal," Hussain said.

Earlier, State Principal Secretary (Home) Amir Subhani said on Sunday that the state government had taken actions to improve security measures at the Mahabodhi temple and adjoining areas on the basis of all inputs given by the intelligence agencies.
