Patna: The Janata Dal (United) workers staged a protest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Sunday and blamed him for the political instability in Bihar.
The protestors raised slogans against Prime Minister Modi and also burnt his effigy.
"India is a democratic country, and anyone who attacks democracy will meet the same end [burnt down like effigy]," said Ghulam Rasool Balyavi of the JD (U).
"There is no place in Bihar for the murderers of democracy," he added.
Former Bihar chief minister and senior JD (U) leader Nitish Kumar had earlier accused Prime Minister Modi and the BJP of 'attempting to throttle democracy'.
Kumar also alleged that the Bihar Governor's decision to ask Manjhi to prove his majority in the state assembly on February 20 has been scripted in Delhi and is designed to 'allow horse-trading of MLAs'.
Kumar, who is engaged in an intense tussle with Jitan Ram Manjhi - the man he picked nine months ago to be the chief minister when he resigned after his party's defeat in the Lok Sabha polls -, had earlier this week met President Pranab Mukherjee to convey the support of 130 MLAs.
Kumar, who was accompanied by JD (U) chief Sharad Yadav and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, took the 130 MLAs to the Rashtrapati Bhavan to show that he enjoys majority support in the Bihar Assembly.
