Such questions came for the first time
This is probably the first time in the legislative history that a legislator has asked a question which is completely casteist. Dwivedi, who first became an MLA from Lambhua seat in Sultanpur, recently came into the news when he went to Aligarh in support of Rajkumar Sahay, a local BJP MLA who was involved in a dispute with the police.
Said – will resign
MLA Dwivedi even said that he would not hesitate to submit his resignation if the matter would come on the honor of the MLAs. It is obvious that this question raised by him will intensify the opposition’s attack on the state government in the assembly.
