Several Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders have been “reprimanded” by party president, Amit Shah, for their controversial remarks on the Dadri lynching and cow slaughter.

Nervous over reports that the party was losing its edge in Bihar, the BJP on Sunday reprimanded some of its top leaders for “making unnecessary inflammatory remarks”, reports The Indian Express.

The leaders pulled up for their remarks include Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Union Minister Sanjeev Balyan, MP Sakshi Maharaj, Uttar Pradesh MLA Sangeet Som and Union Culture Minister Mahesh Sharma, although Sharma was absent for the meeting.

The 80-minute long meeting was called after Prime Minister Narendra Modi reportedly expressed his displeasure as the remarks were not only affecting the BJP’s chances in the Bihar polls but could also hit potential foreign investment into the country.
