Plaint against Baig  for remarks on PM

 The BJP on Saturday lodged a complaint with the Banashankari police seeking action against Urban Development Minister R Roshan Baig for his ‘objectionable’ remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 In the complaint, Ramesh N R, spokesperson, Bengaluru City and Urban District, stated that despite holding a responsible position as a minister, Baig has used derogatory words to attack Modi and BJP state chief B S Yeddyurappa while addressing the Congress party workers.

He has insulted every Indian by using unparliamentary words which attract action against him, Ramesh stated in the complaint. He requested the police to register a criminal case against the minister and act immediately.

However, the police are yet to register a case against Baig. Senior officers said that they would act on the complaint after obtaining legal opinion.

Ramesh has enclosed CDs containing Baig’s speech and newspaper clippings as evidences.

‘Drop him from Cabinet’

In Hubballi, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jagadish Shettar said that by abusing Modi, Baig has not only displayed his culture but also that of the Congress.

Speaking to reporters, Shettar said that if the Congress leadership, including All India Congress Committee ‘future president’ Rahul Gandhi and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah don’t take strict action against Baig by dropping him from the Cabinet, it would be understood by people as their (Rahul’s and Siddaramaiah’s) consent for the abusive language used by him.

“So far none of the Congress leaders have condemned the shameful utterances of Baig, which means that they are in support of his abusive language,” the BJP leader said.

Calling Baig unfit to be a minister, Shettar asked Siddaramaiah to either seek the minister’s resignation or drop him from the Cabinet.
