Administration Watches as Patna'ites Agonize due to Massive Protest Rally

Patna: Patna residents were cursing themselves on Thursday for living in a city where even the smallest chore becomes a tedious task and a harrowing experience as thousands of Anganbari workers blocked the busy Dak Bungalow crossing for over four hours to press for their demands causing an unbelievable road jam, not to mention the inconvenience caused to the public.

Reluctant to use force, police officials tried to reason with the protestors without any result. Some male protestors were forcibly removed by the cops but other than that, the administration remain a moot spectator for over four hours as people remained stuck in the traffic not knowing when they would reach their destinations.

The Nitish administration, after some initial promise to give a fair hearing to their grievances, has washed its hands off the Anganbari workers saying their demands for fixed wages and increase in their stipend were unjust and uncalled for.

According to one report, protestors came in small and large groups from all sides of the state capital and by noon, their numbers ballooned to nearly 5,000 bringing the city infrastructure to its knees.

Several people were briefly detained and later released by the Kotwali police station.

City Superintendent of Police (Central) Chandan Kushwaha said an FIR has been filed against the protestors for disrupting normal life in the city and causing hindrance to government functioning.
