He said during my programme in Buxar, some miscreants, just 5-6 feet away from me came with swinging their sticks on air in an attempt to attack me, but my bodyguards and the police personnel nabbed three persons and saved me.
“Not only had this one person run away with a country-made pistol wading through the police personnel, who were present in the line of duty. The police remained mute spectators and did nothing,” he added.
