Ranchi, Sep.21 (ANI): Sudhir Mahto, the Deputy Chief Minister of Jharkhand, was a furious and an embarrassed man on Friday after finding his personal belonging missing from the State Assembly, the building of the State Legislature.
I really don”t know how should I react. Sometimes it seems so funny. How can I loose my bag that too from Assembly? It’’s really shocking. I never expected that such kind of a thing can happen inside Assembly too. I lost four mobiles, around 10,000 rupees in cash and some documents,” said Sudhir Mahto, the deputy Chief Minister.
The incident left one and all smiling and surprised.
“I think this event itself talks about how negligent our administration is. If this kind of incidents can happen inside the premises of State Assembly, we should be aware that how insecure is our State. I appeal to the Chief Minister to look into this matter,” said Arjun Munda, former Jharkhand Chief Minister.
According to Sudhir Mahto, the incident took place in the State Assembly premises. He wanted the Chief Minister to probe into the matter.
Mahto said that had kept his bag and file inside the desk, and after a while he found the bag and documents missing. Though he was furious to find such a thing happening to him, but soon he opted to laugh it off.
However, the Deputy CM may opt to just remember the funny side of the incident in the days to come but the bigger question is what if the thief was any terrorist?
