Patna: Congress on Monday deplored the statement of senior BJP leader and Union Minister Giriraj Singh for instigating people to beat officials with lathis if they did not do their genuine works.
President of youth wing of Bihar Congress Lalan Kumar said here that the statement of Mr Singh, instigating people to beat officials if they did not do their genuine works, was highly deplorable. It was also against the decorum of the high position being held by Mr Singh, he added.
Congress leader said that Mr Singh had grossly violated the constitutional norms. An FIR should be lodged against Mr Singh and arrested without further delay, he demanded. The statement of Mr Singh was a challenge to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as his statement was also a serious challenge to him, as claims of Mr Kumar of establishing rules of law vanished into thin air.
