Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma was on Tuesday booked by the Uttar Pradesh police for reportedly calling the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi the "biggest goonda" of the RSS and dubbing party president Rajnath Singh his "slave."

An FIR was registered against Mr. Verma at the Sadullah Nagar police station in Balrampur for violation of the Model Code of Conduct, district magistrate Mukesh Chandra said.

A report of Mr. Verma's statement, which was made during a public meeting, was also sent to the Election Commission.

Mr. Verma, Congress MP from Gonda, had on April 1 reportedly said that as "Modi could not have become prime ministerial candidate without the nod of Rajnath Singh, it proved that Rajnath Singh was not the party president but Modi's slave."

Such Ministers feel that they will get more acceptance and recognition in the party for making such irresponsible statements. The party needs to condemn such people to ensure party discipline and decorum. If such actions are not top driven, it will only be free for all and then it is left to the people to take the call.

The right for this foul mouthed minister is either a jail or a mental
hospital.He has been abusing BJP/Modi with highly objectionable abuses
totlly unbecoming of the post he holds.Similarly the external affairs
minister Salman Kurshid is also using the language unbecoming of the
post he holds.& DrMMS complains of the bad language the opposition is
using.Compared to the language some of his ministers are using the
language of opposition is far far better.Can DrMMS control his ministers
or they are beyond him
