New Delhi :  The BJP on Sunday  accused Congress president Sonia Gandhi, her party leaders and the Centre of being directly responsible for the rise in Maoist menace in Bihar with their "pro-naxal statements".

"Naxalites have become audacious in Bihar. The Centre, Sonia Gandhi and her party leaders are directly responsible for it. By their pro-naxal statements, they have boosted the morale of Maoists," BJP spokesperson Tarun Vijay charged at a press conference here.

He alleged that Gandhi, her party leaders like Digvijay Singh and Mani Shankar Aiyar are responsible for weakening "the fight of (Bihar Chief Minister) Nitish Kumar against Maoists" in the state.

Vijay said it was unfortunate that Gandhi had not expressed any sympathy to the family of the policeman killed by the Maoist nor had she condemned the attack.

 "It is surprising that instead of standing by the brave policemen, she is busy in the celebrations of her coronation. How does it matter that she has become president of a family set up of Congress for the fourth time or 24th time?...we condemn this silence (of Gandhi)," he said. PTI
