Muzaffarpur: Expressing displeasure over irregularities in sanction of houses under Indira Awas Yojana (IAY) and other welfare schemes, a group of people today raised slogans against Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the local administration in Muzaffarpur district.

As soon as Kumar arrived at Katra block office during the second phase of his 'Seva yatra', the angry local people demonstrated in front of him and raised slogans against the local administration alleging large scale irregularities in sanction of houses to the poor people under the IAY and implementation of other welfare schemes.

Taking note of the public anger, the chief minister suspended the Circle Officer Sudhir Ranjan Sharma and transfer of the Block Development Officer (BDO) Tilakdhari Chaudhary.

Kumar later visited Muraul block and inspected a cask bridge from where he left for Maoist-affected Gaighat block for inspection.

The chief minister will spend four days from November 16-19 during the second phase of seva yatra.
