Complaint case filed against Amit Shah in Muzaffarpur court for pakoda comments

A complaint case has been filed in a Muzaffarpur court against BJP national president Amit Shah for saying that selling pakodas was no shame during his maiden speech in the Upper House. 

A complaint case has been filed in the court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM) in Muzaffarpur against BJP national president and Rajya Sabha MP Amit Shah for saying that selling pakodas was no shame during his maiden speech in the Upper House.

The petitioner Tamanna Hashmi in his petition to the CJM Hari Prasad has said that the BJP president encouraging educated unemployed youths to sell pakodas was like making a mockery of their condition.

Hashmi further said in the petition that Amit Shah's comments in the Rajya Sabha while defending the govt during discussion on President's address to Parliament was demoralising for the youth.

The complaint case No. 299/2018 has been filed under Sections 297, 504 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

"Amit Shah's comments in the Rajya Sabha are criminal in nature. Therefore, I have filed a complaint in the court of chief judicial magistrate for redress. I have pleaded in my petition to take action against the BJP national president for his comments," said Hashmi.

His petition has been admitted by the court. Next date of hearing has been fixed for 28th February.
