Patna: A youth was arrested on Monday after he made an abortive attempt to throw slipper at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
The incident occurred when the Chief Minister was busy meeting with other people during ‘Janata Ke Darbar mein Mukhya Mantri’ programme at his official residence 1, Anney Marg.
“The youth has been arrested and we are trying to find out real motive behind the act”, Senior SP Patna Manu Maharaj said.
It later appeared that the youth was protesting the advisory issued by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar government which stops people of Bihar to cook or perform Havana pujas during daytime in rural areas.
The CM when asked about his reaction on the issue condemned the act and said, “Throwing chappals at me will not solve problems but I have forgiven the youth and have asked the DGP to forgive him from my side”.
Adding to this he said, “Running a government is like wearing crown of thorns. It’s my duty to create an environment of safety and governance in the state”. “I don’t need certificate of religion from anyone my government works for the people,” Nitish Kumar said.
The advisory was issued by the disaster management department last month to avert incidents of fire in the state....
