Upset over lack of development, a group of villagers on Friday stoned Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's convoy in Buxar district, injuring almost a dozen security personnel, an official said. Bihar Chief Minister was on his way to a village in the district as a part of his "Vikas Kaaryon Ki Sameeksha Yatra".

The villagers are angry at the way the development has got "limited" to some particular villages and the works are being carried out at those places only where the chief minister has made a decision to visit.

The officials stopped them from reaching where Nitish was going door to door. Nitish Kumar was rescued safely by his security personnel but two security personnel in his convoy got injured. "The window panes and windscreens of several vehicles were broken, interrupting the motorcade for a few minutes", a senior official in Bihar government told DNA. In a fit of rage, the villagers chased the cavalcade and hurled bricks and stones at it, damaging many vehicles. Security personnel had a tough time bringing the situation under control. "I will continue visiting places to have a firsthand feel of development works".
