Patna, Sept. 14: JD(U) MLA Rajiv Shukla alias Munna threatened to resign from Bihar Assembly today after being attacked in Vaishali yesterday.

Already in an instant justice mode, irate people allegedly attacked Shukla, an MLA from Lalganj in Vaishali, with stones for the latter’s failure to repair a river embankment and a washed-out Jafarabad road. Somehow the MLA who faces numerous charges of abduction and murder escaped. Shukla immediately announced that he would resign from the House. “It is hard to live as an MLA when the officials do not listen to us. I have repeatedly asked them to get the road repaired,” he said.
