Madhya Pradesh Congress on Tuesday demanded filing of a case against BJP MP Sumitra Mahajan and organisers of her birthday function in connection with alleged disrespect shown to the national flag by party workers.
"During Mahajan's birthday celebrations held recently, BJP workers showed disrespect to the national tricolour", said Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly, Ajay Singh.
This was a serious offence for which a criminal case should be filed against Mahajan and she should be removed from all posts held by her in the BJP, he demanded.
When contacted, a BJP spokesperson said he can neither confirm nor deny the incident and refused to come on record.
Sumitra Mahajan was not available for comment.
