"Those opposing Narendra Modi are looking at Pakistan, and such people will have place in Pakistan and not in India," Singh told a poll meeting at Mohanpur Haat Maidan near the temple town Deogarh yesterday.

Though BJP leaders immediately sought to distance themselves from the comment, Singh went on to repeat what he said on Twitter.

Speaking to The Indian Express, BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi, said that the party in no way supports Singh's comments. He said, "I have also seen Giriraj Singh’s statements on the Internet. The party completely disowns his statement and will ask to refrain from making such statements.”

Attacking the Congress-led UPA government, Singh said, "The central government gives subsidy to those who export beef and not to those rearing cows."
