Bihar Cries Against Price Hike

Bihar Cries Against Price Hike
September 20, 2012

BJP leaders Ravishankar Prasad, who was seen cycling in a rally, and CP Thakur have been detained in Patna for protesting against the government. Several other opposition leaders have also been detained.  Activists from the BJP and its allies gathered at railway stations across Bihar and forcibly stopped train services, leaving thousands of passengers stranded.

"Protesters have tried to target trains and bus stations and (we expect) they will also target shops and business establishments," Ravinder Kumar, a senior police officer in Patna, the capital of Bihar, said. All private schools in the state were closed because of the strike, but government schools and offices remained open.
