Singh, who is the Agriculture Minister, was twice captured by the lens having forty winks. He was sitting on the second chair on the Chief Minister’s right.
Rural Development Minister Nitish Mishra tapped Singh on the back, while Chief Secretary Ashok Kumar Sinha also did the same as the audience could be seen laughing.
The Chief Minister chose to ignore the episode and continued to lay emphasis on his government’s achievements.
Singh had recently courted controversy by describing Pakistan as a younger brother when the entire nation was outraged at the killing of five Indian soldiers on the Line of Control (LoC).
Recently, he had described BJP’s Prime Ministerial Narendra Modi as the 'biggest terrorist of the country' which many of his own party men did not take well.
