Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's convoy was attacked in Buxar, while he was on way to a village in the district as a part of his "Vikas Kaaryon Ki Sameeksha Yatra" on Friday. "But we are not bothered about them".

Nitish Kumar is on a state-wide tour these days to learn the needs of the people for developing the state. He said, "Some people, who were not happy with my commitment, provoked others for such things".

The chief minister was unharmed. Some ten policemen in charge of the CM's security sustained severe injuries.

Trump threatens to cut USA aid to Palestine
For nearly a year, Trump's team had held meetings with Israeli, Palestinian and Arab leaders ahead of an expected peace proposal. Senior Palestinian leader Saeb Erekat said Trump is "threatening to starve Palestinian children in refugee camps".

He said the cavalcade moved ahead for the village where the chief minister launched 168 schemes worth Rs 272 crore before addressing public meeting.

He also spoke at length about his mission of ban on sale and consumption of alcohol and the drive against dowry and child marriage as also measures being taken by the government for skill development of the youths so that they got better job opportunities. In a fit of rage, the villagers chased the cavalcade and hurled bricks and stones at it, damaging many vehicles. State Health Minister and senior BJP leader Mangal Pandey, without naming the RJD, condemned the incident and said it was "a sponsored programme" in which those "having affinity with a particular political party" were involved.

The Opposition condemned the attack, but said the CM introspect why he is facing protests from all corners.
