The anger of women's procession against the rapidly increasing rapes, abductions and murder of women as well as inaction of police and administration in Bihar manifested itself by breaking Section 144 at Dak Bunglaw Crossing in Patna. The procession of women, coming in thousands, was taken out from historic Gandhi Maidan under the banner of Mahila Atyachar Virodhi Sangharsha Morcha (Af front of Struggle Against Atrocities on Women). The procession was conversed into a mass meeting after police prevented them to go ahead by closing the gates on the road at Hartali More.

Addressing the vast gathering of women at Hartali More, Sadhana Mishra, Secretary, All India Mahila Sanskritik Sangathan (AIMSS), Bihar State Unit said, “The incidents of rape, atrocity, abduction and murder of women are increasing rapidly in the regime of Bihar CM Nitish Kumar.

The opening of liquor shops on the public places in the name of collecting revenues has added the fuel in the fire.” Claiming itself the government of good governance the Nitish Government increasing the revenues by attacking the modesty of women, she added.

Among others who addressed the gathering were Kanchan Bala, Anamika, Rampari Devi, Sharat, Shiwani and Nivedita. Terming the Nitish Government out and out anti people all the speakers urged the people in general and the women in particular to come forward and build a powerful sustained movement against the attack on the modesty of women.
