Ravi Shankar Prasad and R.K. Sinha supporters clash

Supporters of senior BJP leaders — Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Rajya Sabha member R.K. Sinha — clashed outside the Patna airport on Tuesday after the party decided to field Prasad from the Patna Sahib Lok Sabha seat.

According to police officials, violence erupted soon after Prasad arrived from Delhi and his supporters were welcoming him.

Sinha’s supporters showed him black flags and shouted slogan against him. Police and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel dispersed the mob.

Prasad refused to comment on the incident. He will contest from the seat which was held by dissident BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha.

A senior BJP leader said that Sinha was keen to contest from Patna Sahib.

The BJP is contesting from 17 of the 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar as part of the NDA.
