If we talk about communal riots, then in 2017, there were a total of 723 communal riots in the country of which 163 occurred in Bihar. Bihar topped the country in this matter.
Similarly, incidents of communal violence occurred in Bhagalpur, Aurangabad, Samastipur, Munger, Sheikhpura, Nalanda and Nawada in March-April 2018. The opposition was targeting Nitish Kumar, but Sushil Modi also stood there as a shield. On the allegations of RJD leader Tejashwir Yadav, Modi said that for the situation to become normal in the state, Tejashwi Yadav is not discharging his role properly.
