In what could signal fresh trouble for Congress president Rahul Gandhi, a Mumbai-based activist has filed a complaint against him for his tweet on International Day of Yoga where he ended up insulting the Indian Army’s canine unit.

Complaint filed against Congress president Rahul Gandhi

The complaint has been filed by one Atal Bihari Dubey who is practising as an advocate in Bombay High Court and other courts in Mumbai. The complaint says that Rahul Gandhi has indulged in ‘public mischief with the intention to disrespect the Indian Army as well as International Yoga Day’.

The Tweet of Rahul Gandhi that Dubey has referred to in his complaint is one where Rahul Gandhi had tweeted two pictures of the Indian Army’s canine unit doing yoga along with their instructors. The tweet was captioned by Rahul Gandhi as ‘New India’.

The tweet led to massive uproar and several people, commentators and the general public believed that the Congress president had insulted the canine unit of the Indian Army.

The complaint says that Rahul Gandhi indulged in mischief and hurt sentiments of the people, and thus, should be prosecuted as per the law.

Dubey has urged the police to file an FIR against Rahul Gandhi in the matter.
