Ahead of Assembly elections in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar faced protest at yet another rally in the state. A group of people shouted slogans criticising his leadership and expressing support for the rival Rashtriya Janata Dal. Slogans of “Murdabad, Murdabad” filled the air. Kumar replied, “Go attend the rallies of those who you support.” This was not the first incident when Kumar had faced protests. He faced protest at his public rally in Aurangabad’s Rafiganj constituency. Protesters shouted “Nitish chor hai” slogans while he was speaking on the stage. Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar, gunning for a fourth term, appeared to have been needled by ‘Lalu Zindabad slogans” at his poll rally. The CM had to stop midway to take stock of the slogan shouting people in the crowd. Assembly elections in Bihar will be conducted in three phases between October 28 and November 7. Results will be announced on November 10. ruling
