New Delhi [India], November 27 (ANI): Tej Pratap Yadav on Monday drew flaks after he threatened Prime Minister Narendra Modi for downgrading his father and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's security cover.

While the union ministers demanded apology from Tej Pratap, Bihar ministers also slammed him for his derogatory remark.

Speaking to ANI, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, "These statements by Tej Pratap showed that the corruption shops of Congress and its allies have been shut down. And that is why they are venting out their anger like this. These people will destroy their party."

Union Minister Giriraj Singh also tore into Tej Pratap and sought his apology in the regard.

"I think Lalu Prasad will have to answer this. We are getting to see Lalu's true faces since he is out of politics. The nation will not accept this. He should seek apology for this statement. I think Lalu ji is making his wife and son say such things, Singh told ANI.

Former Bihar cabinet minister, Tej Pratap, earlier in the day, threatened to skin Prime Minister Modi for scaling down his father's security cover.

Meanwhile, Bihar Urban Development Minister Suresh Sharma branded Tej Pratap Yadav 'mentally unstable.'

Speaking to ANI, Sharma said "Only a person who is mentally unstable will make such statements, a politically sane person will never make such statements".

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi also reacted strongly to his statement and said he would be taught a lesson by the public.

Tej Pratap, earlier in the day, threatened to skin Prime Minister Modi for scaling down his father's security cover.

"This is a conspiracy to get him (Lalu) murdered, but we will give a befitting reply to them (the Centre). We will get Narendra Modi skinned (Hum Narendra Modi ki khaal udedhva denge); go and tell him," Tej Pratap said

Tej Pratap's remark came in the wake of the Centre's decision to downgrade his Z-Plus security cover and withdraw the NSG (National Security Guard) security cover provided to Lalu Yadav.(ANI)
