Former Indian SC’s judge faces backlash over humiliating comments about Bihar
India’s Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju recently posted ridiculing comments, which served him back with adverse criticism.
Katju has made a calumnious post recently on his Facebook page, consequently triggering a rage against him, amongst the people of Bihar.
His post that was actually directed towards Pakistanis offered a “package” to Pakistan, in which Katju suggested Pakistan to take Bihar along with Kashmir.
“You have to take the whole package, or none at all. Either you take both Kashmir and Bihar, or nothing.”
As a reaction to Katju’s insulting comments, Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav responded in the following words:
“The state of Bihar may be lacking in resources but it did not give Katju a free hand to humiliate Bihar… The state may be devoid of resources but it does not mean anyone can lambast it.”
In order to evade from the situation, Katju later made a statement and termed his post as a mere “Joke” and nothing badly intended, though Katju has not been able to snuff out the fire he triggered amongst the different political sections.
The ruling Janata Dal-United leaders have aggressively demanded to take legal action against Katju, terming his comments as an act of sedition.
The BJP has also made a move and asked for Katju’s “immediate arrest”.
