“Everyone knows what these women do as their husbands remain outside after marriage,” Manjhi said at a function at Jhajhwa Pakdi village in Gopalganj district on Wednesday. The CM hoped the migration of workers from villages would stop with the launch of government-sponsored programmes.
Regarding his statement about upper castes, Manjhi on Thursday said it was based on historical facts. “I’m firm on my statement,” he told the media. “I didn’t say anything wrong.”
