A day after Bihar Minister and BJP leader Prem Kumar claimed that he was allegedly attacked by Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) workers while addressing the public of Goh Constituency, the angry village locals protested against the BJP leader and Goh MLA Manoj Sharma in Chapra village.
After the situation went out of hand, the BJP leader Prem Kumar and the present MLA had to leave the place immediately.
Yesterday, Kumar asserted that the Lalu-led RJD workers attacked him. “While I was addressing the public, around 50-60 RJD workers created a ruckus and tried to attack me. Police intervened and saved me,” said Kumar. “They were moving towards me while raising slogans–Lalu Yadav Zindabad. I would like to thank the police. This is a shameful act in a democracy,” he added.
