Case filed against youth for posting ‘objectionable comments’ against Rahul Gandhi on Facebook

A complaint has been lodged by a local Youth Congress worker against a youth in Ambala Cantt Police Station of Haryana for making “objectionable comments” against Congress vice president in Facebbok. The complaint has been registered under the IT Act. The police is currently investigating the matter.

The accused has been identified as one Kapil Malhotra, a resident of New Model Colony in Ambala Cantt city, though he has not been arrested.

According to local media reports, the police complaint was launched by a Youth Congress worker called Sidharth Gulati, who is a resident of Ambala city. On Monday evening, Gulati and his fellow Youth Congress workers and supporters gathered at the local Congress office situated at Nicholson Road and held a march towards Ambala Cantt Police Station. The march was led by Youth Congress secretary Atul Mahajan. They lodged a complaint with the Station House Officer (SHO).

Reports indicate that Gulati had asked the accused to delete the comment which was left on a picture of Rahul Gandhi with his niece, but he refused to comply, following which he decided to take the matter to police. Though the exact nature of the complaint is not known, it seems that the Youth Congress workers were additionally angered by the use of the word “Pappu” for Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

It could be noted that Vinay Pradhan, the Meerut district president of Congress was sacked from the party post for sarcastically using “Pappu” for Rahul Gandhi, albeit in a positive context. Pradhan had used the word in a WhatsApp message, which he shared in a group of Congress leaders and supporters.
