Lucknow, Dec 13  :  Terming Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's comment on migrants as irresponsible, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati today asked him to apologise to people of the country.

"Chidambaram's remarks are irresponsible. He should not only apologise to people of the country but also take back his words immediately," She said in a statement here.

"People of UP and Bihar will not forget Chidambaram for his comment," the Chief Minister said.

Talking to reporters in New Delhi earlier in the day on the sidelines of a function, the Home Minister sought to blame migrants for crimes in the national capital.

Chidamabaram later withdrew his remarks saying he was dismayed that some people have pounced upon the word migrant and have raised a controversy. PTI
