Plaint against Goa CM before Patna court over ‘migrant labourers’ indulgence in crime’ remark


Patna: A complaint was lodged against Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant before a court in Patna on Wednesday in connection with his remark that “90 per cent of the crimes in the coastal state were committed by migrant labourers from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar”.

The petition was filed before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Patna, by Manish Kumar Singh, a local leader of the ruling JD(U).

Singh has taken exception to Sawant’s remark, made during a speech in Goa on Labour Day, when the CM had blamed people of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh for “90 per cent of crimes” in the coastal state.
