Nitish Kumar offers to touch cop’s feet at ‘JP Ganga Path’ event in Patna: ‘Please finish the job…’

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar folded his hands and touched the feet of an “IAS officer” at an event on Wednesday. In a viral video, Kumar was heard telling the officer, “Kahiye to hum aapka paer choo len (I will touch your feet if you wish)”. Then he stood with folded hands.

According to news agency ANI, Nitish Kumar urged an IAS officer to expedite the work of extending JP Ganga Path up to Kangan Ghat in Patna. However, PTI reported that he spoke to a representative of a private company.

The incident took place during a function to open a section of the “JP Ganga Path”, a riverside expressway aimed at easing traffic congestion in the city, to the public on Wednesday.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Vijay Kumar Sinha and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Ravi Shankar Prasad were also present at the inauguration of the JP Ganga path from Gaya Ghat to Kangan Ghat in Patna on Wednesday.

According to news agency PTI, Nitish Kumar was visibly unimpressed and asked a “company official” to ensure that the entire work was completed by the end of the year. He jumped up and said, “Kahiye to hum aapka couple chhoo lete hain .”

In the video, the official can be seen running back several steps and shouting, “Sir, please don’t do this.” Senior government officials and political leaders also stand up to prevent the veteran leader from making a scene.

The report reveals that the incident took place about a week after the Prime Minister offered to touch the feet of a senior IAS officer, urging him to resolve land disputes quickly by conducting comprehensive investigations.

Meanwhile, Kumar reacted to the expansion of Marine Drive in Patna, saying, “It will be very convenient for people to travel to Patna after the construction is completed. It will save people’s time and it will be convenient for someone coming from the north side…”
