Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Friday escaped unhurt when an agitated villagers of a Dalit villager in Buxar district started pelting stones on his convoy, leaving about a dozen police personnel injured and half a dozen vehicles damaged.

Over 500 villagers of Nandan panchayat were insisting that the chief minister, who went there to take stock of the progress of development schemes as part of his ongoing Sameeksha Yatra, should also carry out a door-to-door inspection in their hamlet for a reality check.

The villagers were angry over the non-availability of basic amenities and alleged that no work had been done under the seven resolves for governance launched by the government in 2015 that promised piped drinking water, pucca internal roads, drains, among others, to alleviate their awful living conditions.

As soon as the chief minister returned to his convoy, to embark on his onward journey to address a scheduled public meeting in Dumraon block of the district, the crowd got restless and squatted before the convoy.

Police personnel resorted to mild lathicharge to disperse the squatters. In retaliation, some unscrupulous element resorted to stone pelting. In the melee, several police personnel suffered minor injuries. Around half a dozen vehicles also got damaged.

The accompanying officials had a hard time in escorting the chief minister to safety. Kumar, who remained unhurt, was taken to Haryana farm, two kilometres away from the incident site, where he addressed a public meeting.
