Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was shown black flags and slippers during a rally in Nawada on Tuesday, ahead of state elections.
Kumar was campaigning for JD(U) MLA Pradeep Kumar when the incident took place. Reacting to the incident, Nitish said, “I know who you people are. You are also very less in numbers. The better course for you to leave this place.”
According to official sources, the accused signalled the chief minister to sit down while he was addressing the public. When he continued, they waved slippers at him, the sources said.
Taken aback, the CM asked the gathering whether they wanted to hear him or not, to which a loud noise of “yes” came out.
After the rally, the JD(U) candidate accused the opposition parties of instigating miscreants to disrupt the CM’s address.
The incident came a day after Nitish was shown black flags in the constituency demanding a change of candidate.
The five-phase Bihar elections begin October 12. Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) will be contesting the elections in alliance with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD.
