Patna: Controversial MP Pappu Yadav on Wednesday urged Maoists to kill political leaders instead of security personnel, saying the former "looted" the country while the latter provided it security.
"Politicians (leaders) are looting the country, so Maoists should first kill them," the expelled RJD leader said in Hajipur town.
Pappu urged the Maoists not to kill the security forces. "Maoists should kill those who have been looting the country."
Now heading the Jan Adhikar Party, Pappu Yadav also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi why Maoist attacks continued despite demonetization. "Modi had claimed that corruption, terrorism and Maoist problems will be eliminated after demonetisation," he added.
