New Delhi [India], May 27 (ANI): A complaint has been filed against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, and others for allegedly making “inciteful statements” regarding the caste of President Droupadi Murmu in relation to the inauguration of the new Parliament building.
Supreme Court advocate Vineet Jindal filed the complaint, accusing Kejriwal, Kharge, and others of making intentional statements with the intent to promote enmity among communities and create distrust for the Government of India. The complainant cited sections 121, 153(A), 505, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) to support the allegations.
According to the complaint, Kharge and Kejriwal’s statements were aimed at highlighting the caste of the esteemed President of India, suggesting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the present government deliberately excluded her from the inauguration of the new Parliament building.
The widely published and circulated statements on news and social media platforms could provoke the Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Adivasi communities, as President Murmu herself belongs to the Adivasi and ST community, the complaint further stated.
The complaint strongly condemned such statements made by influential political leaders, emphasizing that they should not be allowed to disgrace the highest constitutional posts for their own political gain. It further asserted that these statements not only promote enmity among communities but also instill fear and distrust in the community towards the duly elected government, constituting offenses under sections 121, 153(A), 505, and 34 of the IPC, which are cognizable and serious in nature.
The complainant has urged the Delhi Police Commissioner to register a First Information Report (FIR) and take strict legal action against the accused parties.
