Congress Leaders Booked for Insulting Flag on Sonia's Birthday

Raipur, Dec 12 (IANS) Two senior Congress leaders in Chhattisgarh have been booked for cutting a cake designed like the national flag on the birth anniversary of party president Sonia Gandhi, police said Sunday.

The two Congressmen, state general secretary Subhash Sharma and Raipur city unit president Inderchand Dhariwal, were booked under section 2 of the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971.

"It's a very serious offence. We have registered the complaint as all local dailies carried photographs of the Congress leaders cutting the tri-coloured cake at the state party headquarters on Thursday," police inspector I.H. Khan told IANS.

Chhattisgarh's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has sought immediate action against the two.

Sources say state Congress president Dhanendra Sahu and some other senior leaders have expressed their strong displeasure over the incident.
