BJP Protests Outside Kamal Nath’s Residence Over UP-Bihar Remark

Workers of Delhi BJP's Purvnachal Morcha on Tuesday staged a protest and blackened the nameplate of newly elected Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, in a protest over over his statement against the people of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, outside his residence.

The protesters gathered outside Nath's residence on Tughlaq Road in Delhi and raised slogans demanding that he should apologise to people of those two states.

Nath, after taking office on Monday, told reporters that his government will incentivise industries that give 70 percent jobs to locals in Madhya Pradesh. He also claimed that people from UP and Bihar got employment in the state at the cost of the local population.

It seems Nath immediately forgot the Constitution of which he took oath as a chief minister, said Manish Singh, president of Delhi BJP's Purvanchal Morcha. "The Constitution allows people of the country to go and settle in any part of the country and take up any livelihood means of their choice."
