Asansol (West Bengal), Sept 19: Union Minister Babul Supriyo created a controversy when he threatened to "break a man's leg" during a public event in Asansol, West Bengal on Tuesday.
Interestingly, Babul Supriyo was invited at Samajik Adhikarita Shivir, an event organised to donate wheelchairs and other equipment for the differently-abled people. He got upset at someone from the public and said, "Why are you moving? Please sit down."
While speaking at the event, the singer-turned-politician initially got miffed at someone from the public and said, "Why are you moving? Please sit down."
The controversial statement came when Supriyo lost his cool after a man distracted him with his continuous movement. The b Minister snapped back at the man, saying, "What happened to you? Any problem? I can break one of your legs and can give you a crutch."
