Singh said that in 2024, when the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) will complete 100 years, India would be declared a Hindu Rashtra.
He termed West Bengal as ‘Lanka’ and said that half of West Bengal had been ‘destroyed’ and the remaining would be finished after the Assembly elections.
Singh had earlier called West Bengal Chief Minister as ‘Supranakha’ and said that BSP President Mayawati spends money on beauty treatments.
No action has ever been taken against the legislator for making objectionable statements.
