Congress leader Raja Pateria, who made the kill PM Modi if you want to save the constitution remark, was arrested from his house in Madhya Pradesh’s Damoh district in the wee hours of Tuesday.
Pateria was in Hata, his hometown Damoh. The police arrested him from here. Police will present Pateria in JMFC Court Powai. Pateria had said in a meeting on December 11 that if you want to save the constitution, be ready to kill Modi, in the sense of defeating him.
The BJP attacked him for his statement. Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Monday gave instructions for FIR on Pateria. After this, a case was registered at Powai police station in Panna. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh said that the true spirit of the Congress has been revealed.
Pateria apologises, Congress may issue notice
However, Pateria apologised for his statement on Monday night. On the other hand, Congress can issue notice to him. Earlier Pateria had said that he was a follower of Mahatma Gandhi and a Gandhiian cannot talk about killing someone. His video is being propagated in a wrong way, he clarified.
This statement of Pateria is of December 11. He was talking to workers at Mandalam in Panna district. Then he had said that Modi will finish the election. Modi will divide you on the basis of religion, caste, language. The future life of Dalits, tribals and minorities is in danger and if you want to save the constitution, then be ready to kill Modi. Murder in the sense… Be ready to defeat him, he was heard saying.
Congress makes distances from statement, Kamal Nath condemns Pateria
Former Congress Chief Minister Kamal Nath said that if there was even an iota of truth in the video, he strongly condemns such statements. Every worker of the Congress follows Gandhian principles of truth-non-violence. Sacrifice by following the path of non-violence is duty of Congressmen. It is now being said that the Congress may issue a notice to Pateria.
Pateria had issued controversial statements earlier as well
Around 10 months back, Raja Pateria had given a controversial statement. At that time, he had said to a policeman that it was wrong to remove the tribals in the area who were in possession of forest land before 2005 and were earning their livelihood by farming. Harassing tribals in this way, assaulting their women is legally wrong. A law has been passed in the Parliament that those tribals, who were in possession of forest land before 2005, would be given its patta.
He also said that this was the reason why Naxalism is flourishing in Bastar and Andhra Pradesh, because if the tribals do not get justice, they will be forced to take up arms.
