On direction from a local court, an FIR has been lodged against Jharkhand BJP president Tala Marandi’s son Munna Marandi for sexually harassing a girl. On being pressured by the media and political parties, police have finally taken cognizance of the allegations.
Incidentally, he is also allegedly married to another minor, as reported by Newsd earlier.
Former Jharkhand chief minister and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha president Babulal Marandi says he will raise the issue of state BJP chief Tala Marandi’s son’s alleged marriage to a minor during the Monsoon Session of Parliament. He added that he will see how his party can collabor
ate with others to oppose the BJP on this issue.
The BJP state head has drawn flak for the incident. District Congress president Deepika Pandey Singh says the party is demanding his resignation. Many leaders have come out to question the party’s stance on ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padao’ if its leaders are not practicing the same.
