In a bizarre statement, Madan Dilawar, who is the BJP MLA from Ramganj Mandi constituency in Rajasthan's Kota, has held farmers' protest responsible for the spread of bird flu in the country, by saying the protestors are "enjoying chiken biryani and dry fruits for leisure" which is a conspiracy to spread the disease. "There may be terrorists, robbers and thieves among them and they may also be enemies of farmers. All these people want to ruin the country.

"Till now, 47 crows have died in Kota, 100 in Jhalawar and 72 in Baran. No death reported in Bundi.
