Complaint filed against Kejriwal, Kharge, and others for inciteful remarks on President Murmu's caste.

A complaint was filed against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge and other political leaders for making incite-full statements citing the caste of President Droupadi Murmu in relation to the new Parliament Building inauguration

The complainant accused Kejriwal, Kharge, and others of promoting enmity among communities and trying to create distrust for GoI to fulfill their political motives. The complaint was registered under section 121,153A,505, and 34 IPC, according to a report published by the news agency ANI.

Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and other opposition parties have been targeting the BJP-led central government for not inviting President Droupadi Murmu to the inauguration ceremony of the new Parliament building. 

As many as 20 parties including Congress, CPI, AAP and Trinamool Congress have announced that they would boycott the event.

“The inauguration of a new Parliament building is a momentous occasion. Despite our belief that the government is threatening democracy, and our disapproval of the autocratic manner in which the new Parliament was built, we were open to sinking our differences and marking this occasion," the Opposition parties said in a joint statement.

"However, Prime Minister Modi's decision to inaugurate the new Parliament building by himself, "completely sidelining President Droupadi Murmu, is not only a grave insult but a direct assault on our democracy which demands a commensurate response", it added.

The statement also in its statement wrote about Article 79 of the Constitution and wrote, “There shall be a Parliament for the Union which shall consist of the President and two Houses to be known respectively as the Council of States and the House of the People."

PM Modi will inaugurate the new Parliament building on May 28 following an invitation by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
