Karnataka Police on Tuesday lodged an FIR against actor Kangana Ranaut for her anti-farmer tweet. She had tweeted against the farmers who were protesting against the controversial farm laws passed by the government on September 20. The development comes after the Karnataka court on Friday directed the Police to register a first information report against actor Kangana Ranaut for her tweet on the farmer’s agitations against the new farmer laws.

Taking an action on the complaint filed by a lawyer L Ramesh Naik, the Judicial Magistrate First Class court directed the police to register an FIR against Kangana Ranaut who compared the protesting farmers to terrorists.

Karnataka Police booked Kangana under the charges of promotion of enmity between groups, intentional insult, grave provocation and other sections of Indian Penal Code. The Petitioner Naik has said actor’s tweet had hurt the sentiment of the people and prompted them to file a case against Kangana Ranaut. Naik in his petition alleged that the police had failed to register any case against kangna.

Therefore, the advocate demanded the Court for an FIR under Sections 153A (creating disharmony or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will between different by words), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 108 (a person abets an offence) of the Indian Penal Code against Kangana.

On September 21, the actor had tweeted that people who spread misinformation and rumours about CAA that caused riots are the same who are now spreading misinformation about Farmers laws and causing terror in the nation.

Mamata Banerjee

The Congress on Monday claimed that West Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee want to save herself from raids by probe agencies and has thus struck a deal with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “defame” Rahul Gandhi and the grand-old party.

In a statement to news agency ANI, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury claimed that Mamata Banerjee was speaking on the directions of PM Modi as ‘didi’ and PM have made a deal “to defame the image of Rahul Gandhi and Congress.”

Chowdhury claimed that Banerjee wants to “save herself from ED-CBI raids” and is thus speaking against the Congress and Rahul Gandhi to make the Prime Minister happy.

The Congress leader was reacting to the West Bengal CM’s recent comments on Rahul Gandhi wherein she alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was portraying the Congress scion as a hero in their bid to divert attention from burning issues.

Addressing her Trinamool Congress (TMC) party workers during an internal meeting in the West Bengal’s Murshidabad district on Sunday, Banerjee accused the ruling BJP’s efforts to stall parliament proceedings in their demand for an apology from Rahul Gandhi, as an attempt to “make a hero” out of the Wayanad MP so that no one questions PM Modi.

Banerjee alleged that the BJP was trying to shift focus from current issues by stalling proceedings over Rahul Gandhi democracy remarks in the UK.

The second leg of the budget session—which began amid turmoil last week— has been marred by logjams as neither the ruling BJP, nor the Congress-led Opposition, are budging from their respective demands.

While the BJP are demanding an apology from Rahul Gandhi over his comments on the Indian democracy during a recent speech in London, the Opposition has intensified its push for a demand asking for a Joint Parliamentary Probe (JPC) into the Adani-Hindenburg report.
