Patna: Massive protests broke out in Bihar on Saturday morning after the Jan Adhikar Party called for a state-wide ‘bandh’ over the law and order situation in the state and the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) issue.
There have been several murders in Bihar that have been coming to light recently. Many citizens are of the opinion that it is a revival of ‘Jungle Raj’ in the state and protests have broken out across the state after the call for the bandh.
Pappu Yadav of the Jan Adhikar party has opposed the government over the issue of the Afzal Guru tribute at Jawaharlal Nehru University and has spoken out in support of Kanhaiya Kumar, the JNUSU president who has been arrested on charges of sedition.
At various places in Bihar, supporters of Jan Adhikar party have stopped trains and put blockade on roads. Pappu Yadav himself is set to go out onto the streets of Patna during the bandh.
Police personnel have been sent out to the locations where the bandh supporters are gathered as well as at important locations such as railway stations to ensure the safety of the common man but they have been advised not to use force as of now.
