CM Launches Projects Worth Over Rs. 272 crore in Buxar

The chief minister's convoy came under attack attacked in the Nandar village of Buxar district when Kumar was returning after attending a meeting during his Vikas Smaiksha Yatra.

BJP Bihar chief Nityanand Rai said, "It seems some parties like the RJD are unable to practice politics of ideology and have to resort to violence". The CM was, however, rescued safely by his security guards. "Although, the security persons have received some injuries in the attack", officials said.

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.

A group of residents of the Dalit Tola of Nandan village insisted that Nitish should also visit their hamlet of 500 people, which was still deprived of basic amenities. The stones smashed the windscreens of six vehicles, including those of DGP P.K. Thakur, Patna inspector-general of police (IG) N.H. Khan, Buxar district magistrate (DM) Arvind Kumar Verma and Dumraon SDO Pramod.

The chief minister said, "My goal is not to run government from the state capital but to assess ground realities and progress of development schemes so that basic amenities like roads, clean water and power reach every village, in fact, every locality, in the state. They wanted the CM to see the actual situation and started hurling stones at his convoy when that did not happen", a local police officer said.
