Patna: Strongly condemning police lathicharge on outstation students in NIT Srinagar, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday slammed the Central government over the incident saying it reflected its "double standard."

"The Central government on the one hand is raising slogan of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' and on the other hand in Jammu and Kashmir gets people raising the same nationalistic slogan beaten," Kumar told reporters while reacting on NIT Srinagar incident.

"The incident reflects double standard of the Union government. The Central government should make its stand on the episode clear," Kumar said coming down heavily on the BJP-led NDA government at the centre over the incident.

He said BJP could answer on Srinagar better as it has its government at the Centre as well Jammu and Kashmir. There are many students from Bihar also at NIT Srinagar and the state government was talking to J&K government for providing proper security to them, he said emerging from a review meeting of Energy department.

"Students from different states study in an institution like NIT and hence no such incident should happen there," he said and strongly condemned "mistreatment" of outstation students in NIT Srinagar. The Bihar CM demanded expeditious action from the Union government in the NIT Srinagar issue.
