Medininagar (Jharkhand): Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda and Congress MLA K N Tripathy on Thursday had an argument on stage over survey of BPL families after which Tripathy boycotted a public function here.

Interrupting the chief minister's speech from his seat on the dais, Tripathy shouted alleging that the government had not given any benefit to the 11 lakh BPL additional BPL families which it added to the existing BPL least last year.

His protest came when Munda announced that another survey of BPL families would take place in the second week of June.

"You can't dictate a CM," Munda retorted as an annoyed Tripathy walked off the stage in protest. Later, the chief minister continued with his speech to mark the "Palamau district Development Festival".
