PATNA: Two cases were today filed in Bihar seeking sedition charges against AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi for his refusal to chant 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

ABVP leader Ramji Singh in Buxar filed a case in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Hari Shankar Prasad seeking booking of the Hyderabad MP under section 124 A which relates to sedition.

Petitioner's lawyer Uma Shankar Singh said along with the writ-application, two CDs of the AIMIM leader's provocative speech in Maharashtra have been attached.

Another case was registered against Owaisi in Gopalganj by Mohammad Kurwan Ansari, a native of Ektarwah village, urging Chief Judicial Magistrate to prosecute him under the sedition charge.

Meanwhile, in the Bihar Legislative Assembly, BJP members trooped into the well of the House over absence of the Health minister in the House to answer their questions of the members and also chanted "Bharat Mata ki Jai" slogans.

Later, Leader of Opposition Prem Kumar while talking to reporters outside the House said they were patriotic citizens of the country who feel proud in chanting nationalistic slogans.

Without naming Owaisi, he said people displaying "pro- Pakistan inclination" by triggering such controversy and hurting nationalistic feeling of citizens should be dealt with severely in accordance with the law of the land.
