Derogatory remarks against Rahul Gandhi: Hyderabad police book Assam CM for promoting enmity

Hyderabad: City police have booked Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for allegedly passing derogatory remarks against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

Jubilee Hills police booked Sarma under section 504 (intentionally insults, and thereby gives provocation to any person), 505 (2) (promoting enmity, hatred, or ill-will ) of the Indian penal Code.

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Anumula Revanth Reddy on Monday filed a police complaint at the Jubilee Hills police station against Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for his derogatory remarks against Rahul Gandhi.

Congress leaders in the state lodged complaints against Sarma at various police stations, demanding his arrest.

Revanth Reddy, in his complaint, asked the police to take action against Sarma for making defamatory and demeaning statements against Rahul Gandhi which created enmity between the people.

He said on February 11, while addressing a rally in Uttarakhand, Sarma passed a defamatory and demeaning statement against Rahul Gandhi, saying "did we ask for proof that you are Rajiv Gandhi's son?"

"Holding a constitutional post of the Chief Minister of a state, Himanta Biswa Sarma has not only attempted to defame and derogate Rahul Gandhi, a Member of Parliament, and create enmity between people of the nation causing disturbance to the public tranquillity, but also disrespected his post and the constitutional values by his statements," he said.
