Amid Narayan Rane row, BJP leader seeks FIR against Uddhav Thackeray over his remarks on Yogi Adityanath

BJP leader Nitin Bhutada on Wednesday filed complaint against Maharashtra Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray demanding registration of an FIR. Bhutada alleged that Thackeray had called for beating Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath with chappals for “insulting” Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj during his speech at a Shiv Sena Dussehra rally, news agency PTI reported.

BJP President of Yavatmal district, Nitin Bhutada, urged the police to lodge a First Information Report (FIR) against the Maharashtra chief minister, and take legal action against him for his “provocative” speech. Meanwhile the application was submitted at the Umerkhed police station.

In his complaint, the saffron party leader stated that Thackeray used “provocative and filthy language” against during his Dussehra speech on October 25, 2020.

“Thackeray had said that how can a Yogi become a CM? He should go and sit in a cave. He (Yogi) should be slapped with his chappal (footwear). Yogi has insulted Shivaji Maharaj. Yogi lacked the status to go near Shivaji Maharaj. Yogi should be beaten with his chappal when he comes to Maharashtra….would have hit Yogi with chappal,” the application quoted Thackeray as saying.

The application said the remarks made by Shive Sena leader had the potential to trigger unrest and riots in country.

The BJP will file more complaints against CM at various police stations in Maharashtra, Bhutada said.

The complaint was filed a day after Union minister and BJP MP Narayan Rane was booked and arrested for using offensive language against Thackeray.

The BJP Minister was arrested from Ratnagiri following his remarks made during his ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’ in Raigad on Monday that he would have slapped Chief Minister for what he claimed as the latter’s ignorance of the year of India’s independence
