JD(U) workers clashed in Ara after postponement of CM’s Yatra

Patna,(BiharTimes): The Janata Dal (United) supporters clashed among themselves in Ara after the postponement of chief minister Nitish Kumar’s Adhikar Yatra in Bhojpur and Buxar districts on Sunday.

Chairs were thrown at each other. Party workers exchanged blows and freely used sticks to beat their rivals. Many senior party leaders were brutally assaulted and received injuries.

One of the leaders Vishwanath Singh was seen shouting slogan against former Barhara MLA, Asha Devi, and his supporters, which led to the clash in front of ministers and senior leaders.

Though Madhubani violence was cited as the reason for the postponement of the Yatra many local JD(U) workers are of the view that fear of large-scale protest by teachers compelled the CM to take such a decision.

The postponement of Nitish’s Yatra angered the teachers who were forced to work on Sunday, the weekly holiday. They felt more cheated because the chief minister did not turn up.

Meanwhile, the chief of Akhil Bharatiya Rashtriwadi Kisan Sanghathan, Indu Bhushan, who is the son of former Ranvir Sena chief, Barmeshwar Singh, described the postponement as a victory of mass sentiment. “Any chief minister or public representative who do not honour the sentiments of the common people, will have to face the same condition,” he said.

On the other hand Rajiv Yadav, state president of AISA, said the CM postponed his visit because of people’s protest against the torching of Dalit hostel on the day Ranvir Sena chief was killed.
