Patna: Facing arrest for his controversial statements, senior BJP leader Giriraj Singh today said he will surrender before the court tomorrow but did not say whether he would do so in Jharkhand or Bihar.


"I will surrender before court tomorrow. I have respect for law, judiciary and the Election Commission," he told PTI.

When asked, he said, "I will not reveal where I will surrender."

Three FIRs - two at Deogarh and Bokaro in Jharkhand and one in Patna - were lodged against him at the behest of the Election Commission, which has barred him from campaigning in the two states in the wake of his April 18 controversial remarks that those opposing BJP PM nominee Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan, and that the Centre was giving subsidy for export of beef while taxing those who reared cows.

The third FIR was lodged at the Airport police station here two days ago for repeating the same remarks publicly on April 20. Patna district administration had issued notice to Singh and sought his reply within 24 hours, which he did after expiry of the deadline.
