New Delhi, Jan. 18 (ANI): National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) general secretary Annie Raja on Monday demanded resignation of Janata Dal (United) MLA Sarfaraz Alam for allegedly misbehaving with a woman passenger on Guwahati-Rajdhani Express.

“It is shocking that a public representative has done this. Nitish Kumar should immediately look into it. He should be asked to resign. This will be a test for Nitish Kumar,” Raja told ANI.
