PATNA : Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi has landed himself in another controversy by calling upper caste people “foreigners and descendants of Aryan race”.

“The upper caste people are foreigners and descendants of the Aryan race….They have come here from foreign countries,” Manjhi said at a function in Bettiah.He added that “Only tribals and dalits are indigenous people,” the Chief Minister claimed and asked them to educate themselves and imbibe political awareness to ensure that downtrodden sections could play a pivotal role in formation of governments in Bihar.

The Chief Minister has tried to sow a wedge between different sections by questioning ethnicity of the upper caste people which may stoke caste tension in Bihar, Modi said.

A high-level probe was ordered by Manjhi himself, but the officials were yet to submit their report, the former deputy chief minister said and accused the chief minister of seeking cheap publicity by claiming discrimination against him which has been denied by his own ministers and partymen.
