Upset over liquor ban, man throws shoe at Nitish Kumar


Upset over the Bihar government’s decision to impose ban on the sale of alcohol in the state, a man on Thursday threw shoe at the chief minister Nitish Kumar at a function in Patna.

The shoe, however, landed at a distance without hitting the CM.

Acording to a district official, ‘a man attempted to throw a shoe at the chief minister at a function in Bakhtiyarpur in Patna.”

A police official said, “This incident took place when Nitish Kumar reiterated that he was committed to implementing a total ban on liquor in the state from April 1. A man protested against it by throwing a shoe at him.”

Soon after forming government in Bihar, Nitish Kumar had announced its intention to ban both the country-made liquor and Indian-made foreign liquor.

He reiterated his earlier stand during the programme in his home town of Bakhtiyarpur on Thursday.
