PATNA: A senior minister in the Nitish Kumar government has compared the CBI to a ‘dog’, triggering protests from the BJP which sought dismissal of the ‘foul-mouthed’ minister.

Such remark has come from disaster management minister Chandrashekhar who hails from the RJD which is headed by Lalu Prasad. The RJD is a coalition partner in the Grand Alliance government in Bihar.

He alleged there are many families in India who own five-time more money than him but only his family was being targeted by the CBI at the instance of the BJP government at the Centre.

“The BJP people would earlier call the CBI as a parrot of the previous UPA government. It’s condition is even worse than the parrot today. Now, it is acting like a dog of the Centre,” alleged the minister, addressing a meeting of the party on Sunday.

The BJP has raised strong objections over such remarks and sought dismissal of the minister from the cabinet.

“The minister has sought to berate the constitutional institution by passing such remarks. He must be sacked immediately,” demanded senior BJP leader Prem Kumar.

The comparison, he said, shows the “mental bankruptcy” of the minister.

This is not the frost time that the CBI has come under criticisms.

Earlier, the Supreme Court of India had termed the CBI as “caged parrot” and “it’s master’s voice”, according to a Reuters report.

India’s top court had made these observations while hearing a corruption case.

In fact, the term “parrot” was initially given by the BJP which eventually got validated by the Supreme Court.
