Faced with a ruckus by a group of slogan-shouting youths as soon as he rose to speak, Kumar, however, ruled out any 'political' motive behind the event, saying the Foundation aims at connecting with the migrant population of the state living across the country and taking them to their roots.

The youths numbering over a dozen were shouting slogans against Kumar and were waving 'Nitish Go Back' placards. Some of them raised slogans against the alleged physical torture and rape of women at Parbatta in Khagaria district recently.

Suggesting a political motive behind the ruckus, Kumar said the protesting youths had come pre-planned to interrupt the event in order to garner publicity. "There is some disease, which does not go away. This will take time to go. Is this the occasion to do politics? Time for politics has come in Bihar. We will fight it out there. Whoever comes in the government, will he not honour people of Bihari diaspora, who are doing good work?” the CM cited.

"At least the occasion should be chosen with proper thought. It's like protesting in one's house when there is an occasion for some social function. This means that those protesting have no attachment with this entire event and do not share the sentiments (of Biharis)," Kumar added. However, the organisers of the event immediately pushed the youths away after a minor a scuffle.
