On the eve of Narendra Modi's visit to the state, BJP on Friday attacked Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, saying he is busy in "political tourism" and making frivolous remarks about their leader without any concern for those killed in the Patna rally.

BJP also attacked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said he makes statements which always stir a controversy and force his party to defend him.

The main Opposition has already criticised Kumar for not meeting the families of the six people killed in the October 27 blasts in Patna.

Modi will tomorrow visit the homes of the deceased located in different districts of the state.

Attacking Kumar, BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said, "Six people were martyred in the Patna rally... Nitish Kumar can see the sweat on the face of Narendra Modi but cannot see the blood of the people that was spilt. He is engaged in political tourism these days and has been visiting Delhi and other places."

In an another counter-attack, he said while Nitish had spoken about Modi speaking against the backdrop of the Red Fort in one of his public meetings, the Bihar chief minister himself has prime ministerial ambitions and is dreaming of unfurling the national flag there.

"Though six people were killed in the Patna rally, the Bihar chief minister does not have time to visit their families," he said.

BJP also targeted Rahul and said each time he makes a speech, the Congress has to rise to his defence.

"Rahul Gandhi's speeches have no effect and whenever he opens his mouth he gets embroiled in a controversy and his party has to clarify... Congress only incurs loses when its prime ministerial candidate Rahul Gandhi speaks," Hussain said.
