Bihar Law Minister Kartikeya Singh also has a criminal record
Bihar Law Minister Kartikeya Singh also has several criminal cases registered against him. Interestingly, on 16th August, a warrant was issued for him to appear in Court in a kidnapping case. On the same day, he took an oath as a minister. Kartikeya Singh is an MLA in Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD. He used to be a teacher.
Kartikeya Singh said about the allegations against him, ‘All the allegations against me are false. I have given all the information about it to the Election Commission in the election affidavit. There is a difference between being accused and being convicted. Nothing has been proven yet. Jungle Raj has not come to Bihar.’
In the country, people’s representatives and ministers have a criminal record as their qualification. People are also electing such people now. Please realise that this is dangerous for the Indian democracy.
