Aurangabad: Ignoring boycott call by Maoists
against his visit, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday undertook
Seva Yatra and visited naxal-infested Amba and Kutubagarh
areas in Bihar`s Aurangabad district to inspect the
development works being carried out by the authorities.

Kumar, who arrived here from New Delhi this afternoon,
flew in a chopper to Aurangabad where he visited the Goh
Circle and Block offices and went to Parta village under Amba
police station where he offered prayers at a temple.

He stayed for an hour at archaeological site at
Kutumbagarh and directed the Divisional Commissioner KP
Ramaiya to take immediate steps for development there.

Kumar also visited Mehfile Kalin to see weaving of
carpets and inspected the Khadi Gramudyog centre at Obera.

He would camp in Aurangabad tomorrow and the day after.

Ahead of Bihar Chief Minister`s scheduled Seva Yatra
today, Maoists had pasted posters in schools and government
buildings asking the people to boycott his programmes in
Aurangabad district.

The posters appeared in schools, community centres and
government buildings under town police station late last
night, police said.

Earlier Maoists had burnt road rollers of a private
construction firm engaged in road construction at Parta
village in the district on December 26.

The road was being repaired for Kumar`s proposed visit
to the district.

Security measures have been tightened in Aurangabad.
