New Delhi: Union Minister Giriraj Singh today claimed that the victory of RJDâ€™s Sarfaraz Alam from Araria Lok Sabha seat would make the place a hub of terrorism, which would be a danger to not only Bihar but also the country.
Singhâ€™s controversial remarks invited strong comments from opposition parties, with RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav saying the BJP should withdraw support from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar if it did not believe in his leadership.
A day after the BJP suffered reverses in Lok Sabha bypolls, Singh told reporters that the RJD had spawned an â€œextremist ideologyâ€ to fulfil its political ambitions.
â€œThe RJD has started a new political culture for its political ambitionsâ€¦ They have spawned an extremist ideology which is a danger not only to Bihar but also to the country in the coming days. It will become a hub of terrorism,â€ he claimed.
Singh, seen as a Hindutva hardliner within the BJP, has ignited controversies with his fiery comments in the past as well.
