Bihar: CM Nitish Kumar's convoy attacked during 'Samiksha Yatra'

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar

The convoy of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was attacked and pelted with stones during a "Samiksha Yatra" in Buxar's Nandan on Friday.

Kumar was not hurt in the incident but a few of his security personnel were said to have recieved injuries. Some ten policemen in charge of the CM's security sustained severe injuries.

Nitish Kumar is on a state-wide tour these days to learn the needs of the people for developing the state. CM rescued safely, security persons injured. The villagers also raised anti-government slogans. Reports claimed that many villagers were anguished after the proposed seven development works did take place in the area.

An unfazed Kumar, who went on to address a public meeting in Dumraon block, said, "Some people feel disturbed over my commitment to progress of the state".

Earlier in the yatra, when some protesters waved black flags at Sulindabad village in Saharsa, Mr. Kumar had said wryly, "What is wrong with black colour?" It is a fine shade.
