Assam police have registered a case against Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera for his comments about Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a recent event. The case has been registered under Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 67 of the Information Technology (IT) Act.
Khera had reportedly made controversial remarks about the Prime Minister at an event held in Guwahati, Assam. The comments were criticized by many, including members of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Following the event, a complaint was filed by a local BJP leader, which led to the registration of the case against Khera. The Congress spokesperson has not yet responded to the allegations.
The case against Khera has sparked a political debate, with Congress leaders condemning the move by the Assam police. Some have accused the BJP of trying to silence its political opponents, while others have defended the police action as necessary to maintain law and order.
This incident highlights the ongoing political tensions between the Congress and BJP, as both parties gear up for the upcoming assembly elections in several states, including Assam. It also raises concerns about freedom of speech and the ability of individuals to express their opinions without fear of legal repercussions.
