Patna (Bihar), Apr 26 (ANI): Supporters of Bihar's ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) Government demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, on Monday over a media report of phone tapping of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and several other leaders.
They burnt the effigy of Dr Singh here and called him a 'dummy Prime Minister'.
"The Central Government has tapped the phone of the most popular chief minister of India, Nitish Kumar. It proves that Manmohan Singh is a dummy Prime minister. He has no right to remain in power any longer," said JD-U supporter Rajiv Ranjan Patel.
"He should immediately resign. If he doesn't resign, we will take this matter from Bihar to Delhi," he added.
'Outlook' magazine in a cover story had reported that government intelligence agencies had tapped the phones of Communist Party leader Prakash Karat, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, and Congress leader Digvijay Singh among others. (ANI)
