A minister in the Chhattisgarh government sparked a controversy by calling a rape incident in the state 'small', as compared to the Hathras case. Shiv Kumar Dahariya was addressing a press conference when he made the comment. He asked why ex-Chief Minister and BJP leader Raman Singh was tweeting on the rape case in Chhattisgarh's Balrampur and not the 'big' incident in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras.
