Nawada/Barbigha : Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was on Tuesday shown slippers by a section of people during an election rally in Nawada.

A group of people at the election rally at Warsaliganj showed ‘chappals’ while Kumar was addressing the rally in favour of JD(U) candidate Pradeep Kumar who is the sitting MLA. The restive crowd shouted “Modi, Modi” chant and also chanted anti-Nitish slogans at the rally, ahead of the five-phase state Assembly elections beginning on Octiber 12, reports PTI.

Unperturbed by the protest, Kumar went ahead with his address and listed achievements of his government and his future vision particularly for youths. Though the exact reason behind the incident was not known, the scene continued while Kumar was delivering his speech. Earlier, while addressing an election rally at Barbigha in favour of Congress candidate, Kumar raised the issue of DNA barb of Prime Minister Narendra Modi against him and played the issue of Bihari pride with the public.

“You mean to say that people chose a person with defective DNA as their Chief Minister for the past 10 years,” he said.

Senior JD(U) leader also questioned the BJP slogan of “parivartan” (change). “By parivartan do you mean to send back girls home from school where they are going today on bicycles?” he said slamming the BJP.

The chief minister reiterated his seven future resolves, contained in his vision document, worth Rs 2.70 lakh crore which included Rs 4 lakh credit facility for students.

Kumar made a blistering attack on the Prime Minister for raising doubt as to from where the resource for this Rs 2.70 lakh crore vision would come and assured him “I will not come to you with a bowl seeking fund for this.”
