Adopting a unique mode of protest, BJP MLA Vinay Bihari arrived in Bihar Assembly wearing a vest and shorts (kuchcha). Bihari, an MLA from West Champaran district’s Lauria assembly, was protesting against alleged delay in construction of a road in his constituency. During an interaction with media, he said I have given my ‘kurta’ to PM Narendra Modi government and ‘pyjama’ to state government led by CM Nitish Kumar. Bihari also alleged that he has been demanding the construction of a road for a long time and he has been running from pillar to post but so far nothing has happened, a report said. The BJP MLA also claimed that he has written to Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari, CM Kumar and authorities concerned. Bihari alleged that CM Nitish Kumar had promised on December 26 in 2013 that a road would be built in West Champaran. However, nothing has happened so far.

To draw attention to this lack of infrastructure in his area, Bihari chose this ‘Gandhigiri’ method to lodge his protest and perhaps get the economy in his constituency moving and help the poor people earn a decent living.
