A Maharashtra Congress leader who made an objectionable comment against Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been charged in an FIR filed in Nagpur.
Sheikh Hussain, a former Nagpur Congress president, made the offensive comments targeting PM Modi during a protest on Monday against Rahul Gandhi’s questioning by the Enforcement Directorate.
Congress leaders across the country have been protesting since Monday over the summons to Rahul Gandhi in a money-laundering case linked to the Congress mouthpiece National Herald.
A case registered last night against Sheikh Hussain listed charges like obscene acts and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace.
The Nagpur BJP had filed a complaint against Mr Hussain.
