Pointing out at Bihar government's inability to curb corruption, state's MLA and JD (U) leader Rajiv Ranjan suggested that the government should enforce a new law in the state legalizing bribe.
"When the state is already carrying out all its work based on unwritten law, then convert it into a written law," he told Times Now.
Proposing to legalise bribe in the state, Ranjan asked the government to "enforce a law called 'Right to Bribe' similar to Right to Information Act and like other Right to Acts."
His proposal came in the backdrop of rising corruption in the state and government's inability to keep a check on it.
Dissappointed by the comment, JD (U) National Spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP from Bihar KC Tyagi referred to Ranjan as a "dissident MLA" and said that the party does not "attach much importance to his statement," adding that he has been sent a "notice of indiscipline to explain his conduct."
Grabbing the opportunity to condemn JD (U), opposition BJP leader and Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the governance in the state has gone haywire in the absence of BJP government in Bihar.
"The entire element of good governance has become completely absent after BJP is not there," he said.
