Slipper hurled at CM Nitish Kumar

In an embarrassment for Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, a man hurled slipper at him during an event of JD(U) in Patna on Thursday.

Though the slipper did not reach the stage and landed among the gathering, the party supporters slapped, punched and kicked the accused, who identified himself as Chandan, police said. 

Chandan was then whisked away by police personnel.

The incident took place when Kumar was seated on the podium with state JD(U) chief Vashishtha Narayan Singh during a 'Chhatra Samagam' (students congregation) organised by the JD(U) at Bapu Sabhagar auditorium on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan. 

While being taken away by police, Chandan, whose clothes were in tatters and body full of bruises, told reporters, "I had registered my protest against the discriminatory reservation policy which helps even the better off among the SCs, STs and OBCs even as the poorest of the poor among the Dalits have been left to fend for themselves."

The man later said he hailed from Aurangabad district of the state.
