Villagers attack Nitish's convoy in Bihar

Mahadalits on Friday pelted stones on the convoy of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who was on a state-wide tour to review the progress of developmental work in Buxar. "But we are not bothered about them". Nitish Kumar is now on a statewide trip from December 12 to assess the development projects carried out by his government.

According to reports, attackers hurled stones at the cavalcade but that did not hamper its movement.

The incident took place at Sulindabad village in Kehra block of Saharsa, where the chief minister said a crackdown would lead to undue publicity for the youngsters who were "barely four or five in number" and remarked wryly "what is wrong with the black colour". He said the convoy kept moving towards its destination where the chief minister launched 168 schemes involving an expenditure of Rs 272 crore before addressing a public meeting. Some youths also shouted slogans against Nitish Kumar.

The villagers wanted the CM to visit the Dalit basti of the village which, reportedly, the security of the CM did not allow.

The Opposition condemned the attack, but said the CM introspect why he is facing protests from all corners.

The JD (U) and BJP, however, have alleged the attack to be a pre-planned incident and hinted at the involvement of the RJD behind it.
