Patna: BJP president Jagat Prakash Nadda, who received a grand welcome from his party leaders during the 7-km-long road show from JP international airport, had to face hostile students in Patna College, where he was himself a student in the 80s. Incidentally, his father was Vice-Chancellor of Patna University.

Nadda had reached here to preside over the meetings of office-bearers of the different units of BJP but was greeted with ‘Nadda go back’ slogans as his convoy entered the college premises.

Eventually, the police had to intervene to disperse the agitating students, supposedly aligned with the student wing of Left parties. They were demanding central status for Patna University, a demand that Nitish Kumar has raised in the past, as have several other organisations.

BJP leaders accompanying Nadda were angry and said the police allowed the protesters to come near him.

"Also, not a single woman cop was present when female students rolled on the ground before his vehicle," said a local BJP leader.

Nadda, while addressing teachers in the Seminar Hall, promised that he would take up the demand of the students with the Prime Minister.
