Youth Arrested For Issuing Death Threat To Bihar CM Nitish Kumar

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Friday escaped unhurt when angry Dalit villagers pelted stone on his convoy in Buxar district

Angry villagers on Friday attacked the cavalcade of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar with bricks and stones, alleging that the state administration was carrying out only "selective development". "But we are not bothered about them".

Bihar CM is on a state-wide 'Vikas Samiksha Yatra' since December 12 to take a first-hand account and review the progress made in various districts on development schemes launched by his government over the years. He said, "Some people, who were not happy with my commitment, provoked others for such things". But he admitted that Nitish Kumar was safe after being "rescued by security personnel".

As soon as the chief minister returned to his convoy, to embark on his onward journey to address a scheduled public meeting in Dumraon block of the district, the crowd got restless and squatted before the convoy. Earlier, RJD chief Lalu Yadav had alleged that the Yatra was a scam and Rs 10 Crore was spent by the public exchequer for Yatra. Some youths also shouted slogans against Nitish Kumar.

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

The incident, meanwhile, set off a political slugfest between the ruling JD (U)-BJP combine and the RJD.
