Ranchi, Nov 22: A murder accused would be rewarded the best legislator award for 2010 in Jharkhand on Monday, Nov 22.

Janardhan Paswan, who is a Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) legislator from Chatra, has been accused in the murder of a government official, Mohammad Ali recently.

On its establishment day on Nov 22, every year the Jharkhand assembly confers the award to a selected member.

The assembly committee chose Paswan for the honour for the year 2010.

Reacting to the report, a BJP senior leader said, "'It is sad that a murder accused will be conferred the best legislator award. I am unable to understand how he was selected despite the fact he does not fulfil the parameters of being the best legislator."
