The recent bomb blasts in this Maharashtra town were aimed at breaking the unity among the members of different communtities, BJP national general secretary Ananth Kumar said in Malegaon on Tuesday.

Kumar, who met the families of the deceased in Friday's blasts at Malegaon, told reporters: "Terrorism has no religion. The bomb blasts here are not an isolated event but are linked to other explosions that have taken place in the country," he told reporters.

Kumar, alongwith party's Maharashtra unit General Secretary Vinod Tawde and senior leader SS Ahluwalia, also visited the injured in the hospital.

"This incident had once again proved that Central and state governments had totally failed and intelligence wings had become inefficient", he alleged.

The Central government was giving knee-jerk reactions with no law put in place or no co-ordinated effort being made to prevent such incidents, Kumar said.

The usual style of the Central leadership, paying visit to the affected areas and pay compensation, has been rejected by people of Malegaon, who have returned the compensation, demanding protection, Kumar said.
