Uttar Pradesh, April 24: In a remark that is likely to spark a controversy, UP textile minister Shiv Kumar Beria said that no policeman can do anything without his orders and if anybody does so, he will be sacked within 24 hours.
"No cop can do anything until I give orders. No cop can even sit till I give orders. I am in the government, not in the opposition. How can he not listen to me. If a cop does not listen to me, he has no right even for a minute to sit on the chair, he will be sacked within 24 hours," the minister said.
