Bihar court orders FIR against Giriraj, Sonia says won't respond to people with 'narrow mindset'

The Congress also took to streets stepping up its demand for sacking of Singh staging protests in Delhi and also in Bengaluru where BJP leaders have gathered for its National Executive meet.
    
The BJP on its part sought to bring closure to the raging controversy, saying it considers the matter closed as the minister has expressed his regret.

As the outrage against Singh continued after he kicked up a row with his remarks asking whether Congress would have accepted Sonia's leadership had she not been white-skinned, Singh came under attack even from BJP ally and Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha.
    
"It does not behove a union minister to speak in such a language...it's objectionable remark," Kushwaha, President Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP), an ally of BJP, told reporters in Patna.
