Bihar Minister Vinod Kumar Singh sparked controversy by asking media persons to raise their arms and chant "Bharat Mata ki Jai", but when a few refrained from doing so, he asked "are you supporters of Pakistan?"
Addressing the media in a function here yesterday, he raised slogans of Bharat Mata ki Jai and asked people present there to respond by raising their hands, after which Singh said, "I can see some people are not raising their hands, are those supporters of Pakistan?"
"First you are a son of "Bharat Mata' then you could be a brother of media and electronic media," said Singh, he added.
During the Bihar assembly polls in 2015, BJP Member of Parliament (MP) Ashwani Kumar Choubey had said chief minister Nitish Kumar and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad should "go to Pakistan".
