New Delhi, Feb 7 (UNI) Taking exception to the statement of Delhi Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna framing northern Indians as ''less law abiding'' than their southern counterparts, the BJP today asked people occupying top Constitutional posts to be cautious while expressing their views.
While BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar merely gave out the party's advice to the Lt. Governor, the other spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy, said Mr Khanna is a representative of the Government of India and therefore the Government should ''make him apologise for his statement or else take action against him for this indiscretion.'' Mr Khanna, while speaking at a meeting organised by Traffic Wing of the Delhi Police this morning, had observed that the people in the North tend to violate law and also take pride in it.
Mr Rudy also reminded that the Lt Governor, under severe attack from all quarters, had to take back his ''controversial remarks'' recently on making identification cards compulsory for all in Delhi.
