A Bihar court has ordered the police to file a case against Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan for his alleged anti-Bihar remarks, official sources said on Tuesday.
The chief judicial magistrate in Bettiah, the district headquarters of West Champaran, has ordered the town's police station to lodge a case against Chauhan.
The court's order was in response to a petition filed by lawyer Murad Ali, who claimed that Chauhan had made a comment against Bihar, which was widely reported by the media across the country.
During a rally in Satna, Chouhan had allegedly said, "It should not happen that industries are established in Satna and people from Bihar get the jobs. We will not allow this".
His comments had come barely two months before the civic body elections in the state.
