Indore, August 9
A case was registered towards Madhya Pradesh Congress working president and MLA Jitu Patwari for allegedly posting a doctored picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which the ruling BJP claimed harm the dignity of the Prime Minister in addition to non secular sentiments of the Hindus.
In the picture uploaded by Patwari, the Prime Minister is seen sporting a masks and holding a bowl throughout the Ram Temple ‘bhoomi poojan’ ceremony in Ayodhya on August 5.
Accompanying the picture was a tweet in Hindi which mentioned: “The country’s economy, business and income, declining economic status of farmers, jobs and unemployment, decline of economy, labourers and their struggle. These are not the subjects of television debate. Because, (we) will walk with the bowl.”
Chhatripura police station in cost Pawan Singhal mentioned Patwari was booked underneath Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 464 (making false digital document) of the IPC on the criticism of metropolis BJP president Gaurav Randive.
Singhal mentioned, at first look, it appeared the picture uploaded on Patwari’s Twitter deal with was a “tampered” one, including that Section 188 of the IPC was invoked because the district administration had already banned provocative social media posts.
Indore Lok Sabha MP Shankar Lalwani and native leaders expressed displeasure on Patwari’s tweet and gave a memorandum and criticism to Deputy Inspector General of Police Harinarayanachari Mishra.
They mentioned Patwari had “not only hurt the dignity of the Prime Minister, but also religious sentiments of the Hindus”.
While Patwari, MLA from Rau and better training minister within the earlier Kamal Nath authorities, deleted the picture later, it didn’t cease the BJP leaders from ridiculing him for spelling errors in his Hindi tweet.
BJP leaders mentioned the Congress had made somebody like Patwari, who can’t get Hindi spellings proper, as state increased training minister. PTI
