Anwar, from Katihar in Bihar, asked Kumar to show moral stength like his counterpart Chandrababu Naidu on the issue.

Suggesting that a particular date should be fixed for getting special category status for Bihar, NCP said that all people's representatives- be it MP, MLAs and MLCs from the state- should resign from their posts if the demand is not fulfilled by that particular date.

He was talking to reporters after party's state committee meeting here at party's state unit office.

Anwar said that Kumar was an in NDA government in 2000 when was carved out of but he did not make special efforts in getting any kind of compensation for after its division.

NCP demands that Nitish government, which is the part of NDA, should get accorded the special category status to Bihar and its all round development, Anwar said.

Anwar charged that communal activities are being pursued by BJP and Sangh parivar that has led to spurt in the incidents of communal tension and riots.

It is a well thought out strategy of BJP and Sangh parivar to deliberately create communal polarisation in order to consolidate their votes, he said.

On "Deen Bachao, Desh Bachao conference" organised at Gandhi Maidan here yesterday by Imarat Shariah, Anwar said that all the secular political parties should have been invited at the conference as it would have helped in fighting the communal forces that has vitiated the atmosphere.
