BJP MLA blames own minister over alleged liquor smuggling case


After Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Muzaffarpur’s Paroo constituency Ashok Kumar Singh also blamed Bihar Cabinet minister Ram Surat Rai for his alleged involvement in the liquor smuggling case.

Singh said, “In 2017, Rai had invited me and senior leader Nand Kishore Yadav for a bicycle race event in the school where liquor was found on November 8, 2020. I am quite sure that the school belongs to him only.”

“Besides that event, he had also invited me for the inauguration of his father’s statue in that school,” Singh added.

“Our Chief Minister won’t tolerate any wrong doings. If the allegations on the minister proved to be right, action will be taken against him,” Singh said.

However, a couple of days back, Rai had denied his involvement in the case.
