Gaya: Commotion broke out on Thursday at the venue of a rally here in Bihar shortly before BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was to address it, prompting the police to resort to a mild lathi charge. The police action came after the crowd at the venue became restive and breached the wooden barricades. A section of the crowd also barged into the media enclosure. The crowd ran helter-skelter and flung chappals as policemen wielded lathis to control the miscreants. The rally continued after BJP leaders appealed for peace and calm.
