TO BANDH OR NOT?

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

In the age of con­spir­acy the­o­ries, even reschedul­ing a bandh sparks ru­mours. When Bi­har Chief Min­is­ter Ni­tish Ku­mar resched­uled a bandh to protest against the Cen­tre not grant­ing spe­cial sta­tus to Bi­har from March 1 to March 2, BJP ac­cused him of try­ing to cre­ate dif­fi­cul­ties for party sup­port­ers who in­tended to at­tend Naren­dra Modi’s pro­posed March 3 rally in Muzaffarpur. But Ni­tish, in all prob­a­bil­ity, had a more in­no­cent rea­son—a de­sire to peace­fully cel­e­brate his birth­day on March 1.
