November 20, 2012 12:53 IST

Anguished by the stampede that claimed 17 lives at Adalatghat on Monday, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has cancelled a feast for Janata Dal - United leaders at his official residence on Wednesday.

The chief minister has cancelled the feast that he had proposed to host for JD-U leaders comprising Members of Parliament, Members of Legislative Council, Members of Legislative Assembly and the party's district unit presidents on Wednesday at his official residence in the wake of the tragedy, JD-U- spokesman Sanjay Kumar Singh said.

Kumar had proposed to host a feast for JD-U leaders to mark the success of the 'Adhikar rally' at Gandhi Maidan in Patna on November 4.
