The JD(U) chief was in Parsa to address a rally in support of JD(U) candidate Chandrika Rai, an old aide of Yadav who crossed over to Kumar's party recently.
While the chief minister was addressing the rally a group began raising slogans of 'Lalu Yadav Zindabad' (Long live Lalu Yadav). Infuriated by the disruption, Kumar targeting the group and said, "What are you saying? Raise your hands. What nonsense are you saying? Don't create nuisance here."
