Patna: Angered by the administration's decision to raise the minimum height limit from 155 cm to 160 cm for the post of constables, dozens of women in Patna on Friday staged a protest at the Kargil Chowk disrupting the traffic for nearly four hours.

Demanding immediate rollback of the new rule, the protestors sat in the middle of the busy intersection asking the 'Messiah of the Poor' Nitish Kumar to feel the pain they were going through.

As a result, the traffic near Gandhi Maidan, Ashok Rajpath, and Patna-Danapur road came to a standstill for nearly four hours leaving schoolchildren and emergency vehicles stranded in sweltering heat.

Roads leading to Gandhi Maidan like Bakerganj, Exhibition Road, and Frazer Road also felt the effect of the road jam at Kargil Chowk.

After hours of negotiation by Town DSP Suresh Prasad, the protestors left the area without the use of any force.
