Bihar CM Nitish Kumar's convoy attacked in Nandar Buxar

Kumar inaugurated and laid the stones of schemes worth Rs 168 crores at Nandan panchayat in Buxar district and another 63 schemes worth Rs 228 crore at Ahinaura village in Kamur district on Friday. Bihar Chief Minister was on his way to a village in the district as a part of his "Vikas Kaaryon Ki Sameeksha Yatra". "Although, the security persons have received some injuries in the attack", officials said.

While Kumar escaped unhurt in the attack, at least 2 security men sustained an injury in stone pelting by some of the villagers.

The Chief Minister is on a state-wide tour since December 12 to take a stock of state government's development schemes.

The chief minister has ordered an investigation by Patna divisional commissioner Anand Kishor and IG Khan.

Earlier, Nitish Kumar was shown black flags and he had to pass through anti-party slogans during his last public meetings. He added: "The CM of the state was attacked, but no one has mentioned about "maha-jungleraj" because the one who talked of jungleraj is not the deputy CM of the state". "My goal is not to run the government from the State capital but to assess ground realities and the progress of development schemes".

"It seems some parties like the RJD are unable to practice politics of ideology and have to resort to violence", said BJP Bihar President Nityanand Rai.
