Patna: Fed up with the constant blocking of roads by rallies and dharnas causing immense road jams leading to all sorts of inconveniences, the Bihar Police, in a circular, issued a warning to political parties and organizations against staging violent protests or blocking of the roads.
“Those who are found staging protests, sitting on a dharna, or blocking roads will not get government jobs or any kind of government contract,” the circular read.
Opposition leaders were quick to slam the new diktat accusing Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of acting like a dictator.
“He (Nitish Kumar) is increasingly acting like Hitler or Mussolini,” said a Congress activist.
Meanwhile, speaking at a function to celebrate the completion of 100 years of Bihar Assembly building, the Chief Minister talked about the need for healthy discussion in the House and urged the legislators to think of themselves as ‘sevaks’ (servants) and not as ‘malik’, or masters.
