Hyderabad Police book case against Assam CM
Hyderabad: The Jubilee Hills police have booked a case against Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma over his alleged derogatory comments against Congress leader and MP Rahul Gandhi.
Earlier, on Monday, Telangana Congress president and MP A. Revanth Reddy lodged a complaint with the police asking them to register a case.
Revanth Reddy, who met senior police officials along with other Congress leaders, in the complaint said that during a recent election rally held in Uttarakhand, Sarma had made abusive remarks against Rahul Gandhi, for demanding proof of the ‘Surgical Strike’ carried out in September and questioning the efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines.
“Sarma, in full public view had questioned whether the BJP had ever demanded proof of Rahul Gandhi being the son of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi,” Revanth Reddy said in the complaint.
The Assam CM’s address at the rally was intended to ‘create disharmony in the society and incite enmity, hatred, ill-will against the community of followers and supporters of the Indian National Congress and its leaders Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi,’ Reddy said.
The Jubilee Hills police, after taking necessary legal opinion on the complaint have booked a case under Sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups), 505(2) (statements conducing to public mischief) and 294 (obscene acts) of the Indian Penal Code and are investigating.
