BJP's Kota MLA Madan Dilawar on Saturday triggered a controversy, sugg esting that militants and robbers wanting to destroy the country may have joined the farmers' agitation against the Centre's farm laws at the Delhi borders.

The MLA further alleged that the so-called farmers are not worried about the country, enjoying picnic and luxuries besides relishing delicacies.

In a video statement released in Kota, he suggested that the agitators are "conspiring" to spread bird flu by consuming chicken at the protest sites.

The ruling Congress in the state reacted sharply to the remarks by the Kota's Ramganjmandi MLA, terming his statement as shameful, which reflects the BJP's ideology.

In his video, Dilawar lashed at the protesters and said, The so-called farmers involved in the agitation are not worried about the country. They are not protesting but enjoying picnic, relishing chicken, biryani, cashew, almonds and are availing all sorts of luxuries.

There may be militants, robbers and thieves among them and they may also be enemies of farmers and all these people want to ruin the country, Dilawar alleged.

The BJP MLA claimed that by consuming chicken and biryani at the agitation sites, they are conspiring to spread bird flu in the country.

If the government does not remove them by persuasion or force in the next few days, I can clearly anticipate bird flu assuming a terrible form in the country, Dilawar said.

The BJP MLA said he has urged the Union government to stop these people from assembling on roads and if they don't agree, the government should take stern step to disperse them.

Reacting to the MLA's remarks, Rajasthan Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra said his statement reflects the BJP's ideology.

It is shameful for Rajasthan BJP MLA Madan Dilawar to use words like militant, robber for farmers, Dotasra said in a tweet.
