Stones, bricks pelted at Nitish's convoy in Buxar

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar's convoy attacked in Nandar Buxar

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's convoy was on Friday reportedly attacked in Nandar village of Buxar district.

The news agency said that Kumar's security personnel suffered injuries in the incident. Chief Minister was rescued from the attack safely. The windows of some vehicles were damaged and two security personnel sustained injuries.

Nitish Kumar is now on a statewide tour called "Vikas Samiksha Yatra" from December 12 to ascertain the development situation in the state.

As per the sources, Nitish Kumar was in the village to examine the development works done by his government, but the villagers attacked his convoy due to lack of the same in their area.

"Some people feel disturbed over my commitment to the progress of the state".

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". However, the chief minister safely reached the venue where he addressed the meeting under heavy security.

He also spoke at length about his mission of ban on sale and consumption of alcohol and the drive against dowry and child marriage as also measures being taken by the government for skill development of the youths so that they got better job opportunities.
