A second FIR was on Monday lodged against BJP leader Giriraj Singh in Jharkhand for his controversial remarks that those opposing Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan, while the EC ordered filing of another one against him in Bihar.
The second FIR was filed at the Harla police station in Jharkhand’s Bokaro district while the poll panel ordered filing of another one after Singh failed to reply to a show cause notice within 24 hours of repeating the same remarks at the Patna Airport yesterday, official sources said.
The FIR alleged that the former minister violated the Model Code of Conduct, Deputy Commissioner-cum-Returning Officer Uma Shankar Singh said.
