Earlier on Tuesday, onions were thrown at Nitish Kumar when he was campaigning in Bihar’s Madhubani for the state election.
Tejashwi Yadav, Mahaghathbandhan’s chief ministerial candidate, today condemned the hurling of onions at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Madhubani during a public meeting. Tejashwi stressed that there are other forms of protest to be used in a democracy.
“I condemn the incident. There are other forms of protest in a democracy like voting. This incident should not have occurred. I don’t like this as we fight on issues,” Tejashwi was quoted as saying by ANI.
Earlier on Tuesday, onions were thrown at Nitish Kumar when he was campaigning in Bihar’s Madhubani for the state election. The CM’s security personnel surrounded him forming a shield as the leader continued his speech.
At a rally in Harlakhi in Madhubani, Nitish Kumar was talking about providing jobs when onions came flying at him but did not hit the JDU leader.
“Khub feko, khub feko, khube feko (keep throwing),” said the anguished Chief Minister, who has been seeking re-election as chief minister of the state.
“Let him go, don’t pay any attention to him,” said Nitish Kumar, when the attacker was apparently caught by security personnel.
Two phases of voting have been completed in Bihar assembly polls, while the last phase of voting will be conducted on November 7. The results of the elections will be declared on November 10.
