On Tuesday making a caustic remark on the media, Singh posted on twitter, “Friends what do you expect from presstitutes. Last time Arnab thought there was ‘O’ in place of ‘E’”.
Minister of state for parliamentary affairs and MoS for minority affairs, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi while talking to Governance Now said, “Party is never with those who make such statements”.
