BJP MLA from Agra North, Jagan Prasad Garg, who was recently in news for delivering a “hate speech” in Agra, has sparked a fresh controversy by reportedly saying that Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was not chosen by the people and hence, could not understand the problems of the common man.

In a video that went viral on Sunday, Garg could be heard saying: “Hum Modiji se kahenge, ki vitta mantri ko hatao, aur desh ko bachao. (I will ask Prime Minister Modi to sack Finance Minister and save the country). “Vitta mantri tumhara jo hai na, patli gali se aaya hai, sahi raste se nahi aaya hai. Woh Lok Sabha se chun kar nahi aaye hain, jaise main vidhan se chun kar aaya hun, woh rajya se aaye hain…” (Finance Minister has not come through the right path. He has not been elected to the Lok Sabha, unlike me who has been directly elected by the people to the Assembly. He has come from the state.)

Garg made the remark on Saturday when a group of local traders assembled at Union minister Ram Shankar Katheria’s Agra residence to protest against the one per cent excise duty imposed on certain products.

When contacted, Garg said: “I have been misquoted. The only thing I said was that Arun Jaitley has been elected to the Rajya Sabha and not to the Lok Sabha. Hence, he could not understand the problems of common man. If people had elected Jaitley to the Lok Sabha, he could have understood their problems.”

Garg said he will meet the PM and Jaitley on March 17.
