Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar faced protests on Tuesday as agitators threw a plastic chair in the air and hurled slippers during a rally in Nawada district of the state.

However, no one was injured during the incident, the police said.

The protesters threw the chair when Kumar was getting off the stage after giving his speech, reports said.

Kumar is touring the state and holding public meetings as a part of the ´Adhikar Yatra´.

Nitish Kumar, who had undertaken the ´Adhikar Yatra´ last month, faced protests in several parts of the state including Motihari, Begusarai and Khagaria.

Contractual para-teachers showed slippers and protested against Kumar in Begusarai.

Kumar started the yatra to pressurize the Centre to meet his demand for special status for the state.
