Patna: Arriving in shorts and a vest to register his protest against delay in construction of Bettiah-Manuappa road, BJP MLA Binay Bihari was yesterday denied entry in the Bihar Assembly for violating “shishtachar” of the House.

Not allowed entry, the BJP MLA from Lauria in West Champaran district sat on dharna in the lawns outside the assembly.

Bihari had come in the attire to protest against the state government for not constructing the 44.325 km road from Bettiah to Manuappa via Yogapatti Ratwal despite Chief

Minister Nitish Kumar’s announcement on it at a public meeting in 2013.

Leader of Opposition Prem Kumar raised the issue in the Assembly and pleaded Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary to allow Bihari come inside the house. Later, talking to reporters, Kumar attacked the chief minister and held him responsible for the MLA vowing to wear shorts and vest till the road was constructed.
