In a fresh controversy for Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s ruling JD(U),MLA Shyambahadur Singh from Badharia Assembly in Bihar’s Siwan district,was seen dancing with girls at a cultural programme in a marriage ceremony – TV channels on Friday aired the footage.

This comes quick on the heels of JD(U) Bihar ally BJP being embroiled in a pornography watching row in the middle of the Assembly.

Singh had gone to the house of a brick-kiln owner Ajay Singh at Jafra in Gopalganj district from where they proceeded to Katalpur village in the same district to attend a marriage function.

He was shown dancing during the cultural programme on the night of February 8,2012.

When contacted,Singh confirmed having gone to attend the marriage but claimed not having danced with bar girls but with the ‘artists’ present.

“I have not committed any mistake as people and elders usually dance on such occasions to demonstrate their joy over the marriage of their loved ones,” he said.

Ruling JD(U) had in 2010 issued a show-cause notice to Singh when TV channels purportedly showed him dancing with girls at a programme in Patna.
