Invoke Goonda Act against Sakshi Maharaj: Lalu

PATNA: RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Sunday said BJP's Unnao MP Sakshi Maharaj should be sent to jail by invoking provisions of the Goonda Act against him.

"Sakshi Maharaj is not a saint. He should be sent to jail under the Goonda Act," Lalu said while reacting over the MP's recent controversial statement in which he blamed a particular community for rise in population.

RJD chief also said that some people in the country were continuously issuing controversial statements with an aim to disturb cohesive environment and Sakshi Maharaj is one of them.

Addressing a public meeting at Meerut in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh on Friday, Sakshi had said, "This population rise in not because of the Hindus. Population has risen due to those who support the concept of four wives and 40 children."

Clarifying his remarks, Sakshi Maharaj later denied seeking vote in the name of religion. "It was a meeting of sadhus where political activists were not present. I did not seek vote during my speech."
