Women wings of Indian National Congress (INC) have filed a complaint to Delhi Police against the members of RSS and BJP accusing them of making derogatory remarks against Priyanka Gandhi. Congress party has demanded action over the issue.
All India Mahila Congress President Sushmita Dev and Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress President Sharmistha Mukherjee said the complaint was filed against “unknown persons for spreading distasteful and offensive tweets/pictures of Priyanka Gandhi”, at the Parliament Street police station.
“We have filed a complaint at Parliament police station along with some evidences. We know that the BJP and RSS are behind this but we want police to investigate and uncover the truth and to put accused persons behind bars,” Sushmita Dev said.
She said the social media campaign started against Priyanka Gandhi Vadra since the day she joined politics.
Last month, Priyanka was named the AICC general secretary of eastern Uttar Pradesh.
“The BJP has gone berserk after she became the general secretary of the AICC in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh and they had done the same in past with Rahul Gandhi. We have asked our party members to file the case against this in every state across India,” Dev added.
The complaint outlines charges amounting to offences like defamation, sexual harassment and sections of the IT Act.
Screenshots of offensive tweets and pictures have been attached along with the complaint.
Mahila Congress’ Rajasthan unit also protested in Jaipur and handed over a complaint to Jaipur police commissioner Anand Srivastava in this aspect.
The hoardings featured with slogans like Kattar Soch Nahi, Yuva Josh (Not bigotry but youthfulness). Another slogan on the posters stated, “Jan-Jan Ki Hai, Yahi Pukaar, Rahul ji-Priyanka ji Ab Ki Baar” (People of the nation want Rahul and Priyanka this time).
