A man allegedly threw a slipper at chief minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar at a public interaction programme in Patna, on Monday.

The incident occurred when the youth, who incidentally goes by the name of Nitish Kumar, came to meet the minister and hand over his request at ‘Janata ke Darbar mein Mukhya Mantri’ programme.

As the accused, a resident of Arwal district bent down to take off his chappal, he was immediately caught by a posse of security men.

Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj told reporters the youth has been arrested and taken to Sachivalaya police station for detailed questioning.

In the programme which is held at the Chief Minister’s residence, people present their grievances and the CM directs officials to initiate action.

It emerged that the youth had created ugly scenes previously too at the ‘Janata Darbar’ programme of senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister, Sushil Kumar Modi.

The grievance of the youth was not very clear but officials said he was apparently angry over the state government’s recent advisory against use of fire for cooking and hawan etc between 9 am to 6 pm to curb increasing incidents of fire.
