Chandigarh, Feb. 16 (ANI): Haryana Finance Minister Captain Abhimanyu on Tuesday asked his Cabinet colleague Krishan Kumar Bedi, who was caught on camera abusing an official, to talk in a responsible manner.
“Anyone, who is holding a responsible position in the society as well as in the state, must talk responsibly. I expect everybody, including my colleague in the Cabinet, to be more responsible with what we speak,” Abhimanyu told ANI.
Bedi, who is Haryana’s Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment, stoked a controversy by publically abusing an official during a meeting in Yamunanagar yesterday.
His act was caught on camera.
The minister was discussing the issue of encroachment of parks during a grievance committee meeting when he asked an official about his qualification. The official answered that he is a diploma holder.
In response to this, Bedi uttered a highly offensive abuse and then continued his tirade.
Bedi had courted controversy even earlier when he had made a derogatory remark about Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the cleanliness drive. (ANI)
