Congress urges CM Yediyurappa to withdraw FIR against Sonia Gandhi


From Our Special Correspondent
Daijiworld Media Network

Bengaluru, May 21: The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D K Shivakumar has urged Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa to withdraw a FIR registered against Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi by Sagar Police of Shivamogga district in Karnataka.

The FIR has been registered on a charge that Gandhi has tweeted stating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been misusing PM Cares Fund.

A Congress delegation led by KPCC president designate D K Shivakumar called on the Chief Minister in Bengaluru on Thursday and demanded immediate steps for withdrawing the FIR and suspend the sub-inspector who registered the FIR against Gandhi.


Sonia Gandhi

Earlier, in a letter to the Chief Minister, Shivakumar claimed that based on a complaint by BJP activist and advocate Praveen Kumar, Sagar police have registered FIR against Gandhi under the provisions of the Indian Penal Code.

The complainant has filed this complaint with a political motive and false information on Gandhi’s tweet, Shivakumar claimed.

Gandhi, Congress president and MP, had tweeted with the intention of forcing the prime minister to use the PM Cares Fund for the welfare of the people.

However, this was misinterpreted by the BJP leadership and it instigated Praveen Kumar to file this complaint against Gandhi based on false information without examining its truthfulness, the State Congress leader said.

“This is blatant misuse of the process of law with an intention to snub the right to healthy criticism,’’ Shivakumar said.

Coming in the wake of the controversy over AICC General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is the Congress President’s daughter, on arranging buses for migrant workers by offering 1000 buses and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath raising objections and criticizing the Congress party, the FIR issue against Sonia Gandhi is bound to snowball into a major issue and lead to conflicts between the Congress-led Opposition parties and the Modi government.

    Modi would have won in Varanasi even if thousands of candidates like Tej Bahadur stands in front of him . Because of the popularity of our Dynamic PM . Also I believe you haven't seen the massive crowd when Modi filed the nomination in Varanasi .And also Entire BJP is the single largest party in India by winning 300 + seats because of Power of Modi .And just like Sidharamaiha back in 2018 Karnataka fearing defeat in his own constituency in Chamundeshwari and stood in Badami . Same way Rahul Gandhi fearing to defeat in Amhethi against Smrithi mam he went to Kerala Wayanad and stood in constituency where muslim votes are more and he won . And as far as Gujurat is concerned all the 26 seats were been bagged by BJP itself by the power of Modi . Also forget about Modi Congress party has not even got less number of votes than Others . Then you speak about Congress . Can't understand ur frustration that Rahul Ghandi dint win in Amethi but please don't get frustrated next time even he will loose in Wayanad also . If Rahul Really wanted to expand in South India he would have stood in Mangalore , Bangalore ,Chennai, Telengana and so on .Why in area were he is sure of winning from muslim votes .

    The only difference between the fake news peddling 'Republic TV' anchor Arnab Goswami and the Congress leader is Sonia Gandhi is booked for saying the truth.

    Due to the present legal system from the highest court in its lowest the 'fake news' prevails while truth strangulated. While divisive forces like SC gives Arnab Goswami six weeks' protection from arrest , the opposition leaders who questions the the relief fund of 'PM Cares' for transparency gets prosecuted.

    Now 'PM Care' already kept out of CAG auditing and hand picked internal team led by PM, Defense and Home ministry it is highly unlikely that funds being utilized for the sufferers of the current pandemic affecting country.

    Is Supreme Court of India stands with the truth is to be much awaited.

    Lets get real guys. Its high time the 'Gandhi-Vadra' clan close their political shop. Besides cheap gimmics, comedy and electoral losses they have not given anything. They do not nurture young dynamic talents as future leaders. Its just a family that wants to rule and given oppurtunities countless times despite continuous failures.

    Congress has to organize a massive protest immediately at all levels. I am surprised that none of the DK or Mlore Congress have woken up and given any statement. The letter from DKS is all over media and not looking Good for the party. If BSY agrees to make that guy withdraw,, BJP and BSY will be the bigger person here and will score all the brownie points.

    Protest who? All Cong leaders are rejected by the people . If a protest is called , they cannot even garner 10-15 people. In the State there is only Siddu and DKS both are tainted and on the other side of the hill. In Mlore we have only Khader . Rather than peoples leader he is a Ullala leader and limited only to his constituency. Mithun Rai could have done it, but he is in 2 minds, he is neither in Cong or BJP. Janardhana Poojari is now a Modi fan.
    My only advise to you is , like many other Congis here just be an internet Karsevak and be in the delusion of the Congress bouncing back with RaGA as the PM.

    Nothing is going good for the Congress except for repeated 'Self Goals'-
    2 weeks back the party re-re-re-re- launched its great leader Pappu as an 'intellectual' conducting video interviews with some foreign settled individuals . It did no serve any purpose except ending up as one of his comedy shows.
    Priyanka Vadra's fiasco of 'bus' ended up in a total humiliation as PV's 'auto to bus' conversion was rejected by the UP Govt. PV even draw flak from Congi MLAs .
    Today's FIR tagainst Sonia, from a normal BJP karyakarta , and DKS pleading the CM to withdraw.
    All this makes Congress look pathetic. Is this revival,???

    BJP has to put the tail between its legs and withdraw the case, otherwise it will be counter productive to them. They will give number of reasons favouring them for case withdrawal but this topic is going to be the major trigger point in future for which BJP has no defence but Modi to come clean.

    DKS, why don't you and your madam deal with the FIR in court of law? After all it is just a single FIR unlike the 250 odd FIRs filed recently against an English news channel. Further, the port says in 1st paragraph that DKS has urged Karnataka CM whereas in third paragraph it says DKS has demanded immediate withdrawal of FIR. Decide whether you want to urge or demand. If its demand, I have to tell you that you are thinking too much of yourself. Remember several months ago once you were sitting in front of a hotel at BKC in Mumbai demanding to see some Karnataka MLAs who weren’t interested in meeting you, and you finally had to return empty handed and red faced? Better you learn to chew only as much as you can swallow.

    Why did Modi run all the way to Varanasi for Hindu votes from his Gujrat home bastion. Again in Varansi BSF jawan and SP candidate Tej Bahadur Yadav was very popular to win in Varanasi but Modi with his political influence got Yadav disqualified and withdrew his poll ticket. Only Yadav was out of election race only after that Modi filed his nomination otherwise Modi would have been flown by Ganges to Andaman with Tail Between Legs.

    You are not getting the point here. Modi is from Gujarat and a PM candidate. Besides Gujarat he wanted to increase his presence in North , Hence he contested from VAranasi . Modi was sure and also won both Constituencies twice . All the communities voted for him.
    On the other hand, Pappus Wayanad was a back up plan .As advised by his party seniors and member for sure he was going to lose from Amethi in the hands of a lady , due to his absence and non- performance ,that was very very obvious. So he had to flee to safe constituency where victory was guarnateed even without any accomplishment . One look at who is populated more in Wayand and you have the answer..LOL

    One will not be suprised if this is in response to the multiple FIR's filed against Arnab Goswamy and this FIR against Sonia Gandhi could be at the behest of the MP Chandra sekhar the patron of Republic TV Channel approved by CM of Karnataka who hails from Shivamoga and can be instrumental in directing the police in Shivamoga to file the FIR at the behest of the BJP/RSS.

    The whole country knows how the BJP/RSS have been misusing the police, CBI, Enforcement Directorate and the Income tax Dept to indulge in witch hunt against political opponents.

    States ruled by Congress Govts like in Punjab and Rajastan should counter file cases against the central and state BJP leaders in a quid pro quo.
