Ranchi: The political rhetoric by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and the Opposition took an ugly turn in Jharkhand with both sides indulged in mudslinging, that too in full public view. Stooping to the lowest level of politics, the Men-in-Khadi have dragged the name of RINPAS mental hospital in their tug of war to settle score with each other.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Sunday lashed out at his political opponents during a road show in Santhal Pargana.

Munda had advised Union Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahay and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha president Babulal Marandi to get admitted in RINPAS mental hospital. It is worth mentioning that both Sahay and Marandi have been vehemently opposing the CM’s road show.

Rebutting the CM, the Union Minister said, “Munda has lost his mental stability. That is why he is indulging in cheap oratory. Flop road show has instilled fear in him. Munda should consult the doctor at his residence if he does not want to visit RINPAS.”

Raising question over the functioning of the CM, Jharkhand Congress president Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu said, “Munda’s frustration indicates that he should visit Kanke mental hospital in Ranchi.”

“The Opposition has right to oppose the government policies. People holding the constitutional post should make their comment thoughtfully,” added the Congress leader.
