BJP’s Giriraj Singh has found himself in yet another controversy, this time in a conflict over cash and expensive jewelry found in his house. Singh’s house in Patna was robbed this week by four thieves. The robber when caught handed over cash worth rupees  one crore, US $600 and chic wrist-watches and jewelry, claiming that all the items were from the BJP leader’s house. Giriraj Singh, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader in Bihar, was engulfed in controversy during electioneering when he first declared that all those who did not support Narendra Modi should be sent to Pakistan. Another time, he alleged that all terrorists belonged to a particular community, questioning the trend. Singh over the election phase made several such remarks, garnering many massive criticism.

Giriraj Singh on the other hand has said that the cash did not belong to him. “It belongs to a cousin of mine. Giriraj Singh is clean, and will remain so,” he said, referring to himself in the third person. The 61-year old politician, while filing his election papers in May had claimed that he owned about two-lakh rupees in cash. The opposition too has challenged Giriraj Singh to explain the money allegedly found at his home. For his part, Singh, insisting he was clean, has said that the entire situation was a political conspiracy.
