Nitish faces ‘youth protest’ in poll rally

Patna, Oct 26 (IANS) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday faced a tough situation while campaigning in Munger district for the October 30 bypoll.

He was addressing the rally at Tetia Bazar under Sangrampur block in Tarapur constituency where a group of 20 youths staged a protest, holding up placards and shouting slogans.

As security personnel tried to stop the agitating youths, who were demanding jobs, the Chief Minister called them off.

“They are just 15-20 youths jumping in the air. Let them go. I know who sent them to create a ruckus and cause disturbance during the rally,” he said.

“We will analyse their demands and accept them, if possible,” he added.

Nitish Kumar was in Tarapur to campaign for his Janata Dal-United’s candidate Rajiv Kumar Singh.

The NDA, during the 2020 Assembly election, had promised to provide 19 lakh jobs in a year to counter RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav’s 10 lakh employment opportunity promise.

The bypolls to Tarapur and Kusheshwar Asthan are scheduled on October 30 and the counting will be held on November 2.
