Parliament inauguration row: Complaint filed against these ministers over ‘provocative’ remarks
PTC News Desk: A Supreme Court advocate on Saturday filed a complaint against Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and others, accusing them of making "provocative" statements by mentioning the caste of President Murmu in connection with the inauguration of the new parliament building on May 28.
"The statement has been with the intent to promote enmity among communities/groups and trying to create distrust for the Government of India to fulfil their political motives which are an office under sections 121, 153(A), 505 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC)," the complainant has alleged.
Such statements made by influential political leaders on the ground of caste and against the duly elected government to promote enmity among communities/groups are highly condemnable, the complainant said. The Complainant has asked Sanjay Arora, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Delhi to lodge a First Information Report against them and take strict legal action.
These statements are widely published and circulated in news and social media and would result in provoking the ST and Adivasi community as our honourable President too belongs to Adivasi and ST community, the complaint further stated.
"The political leaders just for the sake of their political gain should not be allowed to stoop to the level of disgracing the highest constitutional posts. Besides, it would cause fear in the community creating distrust against the duly elected government which are cognizable offences and very serious in nature," the complainant added.
The complainant has also requested the Delhi Police Commissioner to lodge FIR and take strict legal action against them.
