CONGRESSMEN LED by State Congress president Subhash Yadav today demonstrated in front of the SP office to protest registration of cases against three NSUI activists who had depicted Congress national president Sonia Gandhi as Goddess Kali wearing a garland made of heads of BJP and Samajwadi Party leaders.

The case under Section 295 (hurting religious sentiment) was registered in Mhow following complaint in zero and then transferred to Tukoganj.

Yadav and other Congress leaders including City Congress president Ujagar Singh, MLA Ramlal Yadav, senior Congress leaders Tulsi Silawat, Pramod Tandon, Kripa Shankar Shukla and K K Mishra met the SP, Adarsh Katiyar and demanded that the cases be withdrawn immediately.

They said the imposition of cases were politically motivated and if this case was registered then cases should also be registered against former Chief Minister Uma Bharti who cut a cake, which had egg in it, at a Hanuman temple at Chhindwara, thereby insulting Lord Hanuman, and also against IMC speaker Lalit Porwal who once in a poster showed Uma Bharti as Goddess Laxmi.

Yadav, who appeared quite agitated, said that the Congress had lost faith in the impartiality of the police. He said that instead of tracing the large number of loot, murder and rape cases that were frequently happening in the City, the police were busy working at the behest of the BJP.

Yadav also demanded an assurance from the SP that no arrests would be made in this case. The SP gave no such assurance, but said they would hold an impartial inquiry into the entire matter.
