Patna blasts: A year on, victim’s family still awaiting job, ex-gratia promised by Modi


It’s been more than a year since the Patna serial blasts rocked the state capital’s Gandhi Maidan but the family members of a victim are yet to get the job and education expenses promised by the PM Narendra Modi.

The family members of Munna Srivastava, who lost his life in Patna blasts during PM Narendra Modi’s ‘Hunkar Rally’, feel cheated as they are running from pillar to post to avail the job as promised by PM Modi.

According to victim’s family, the then BJP’s PM candidate had also promised to bear the education expenses of the victim’s daughter but the promise seems hollow to them.

“Our daughter was not even allowed to attend the classes at her school as we failed to deposit the fee,” the family added.

On 27 October 2013, a series of bomb blasts had rocked Patna at an election rally for BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Reportedly, six people were killed and 85 others were injured in eight bomb blasts.
