FIR filed against AAP MLA Raghav Chadha for tweet claiming Yogi Adityanath 'beat migrants'

On Sunday, an FIR was filed against AAP MLA Raghav Chadha for making objectionable comments against UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

ANI News reported that the FIR had been filed against Raghav Chadha for his comments against Yogi Adityanath.

Chadha had tweeted that: “According to sources, Yogiji is getting migrants going from Delhi to UP beaten up. He is saying why did you go to Delhi and you will not be allowed to go to Delhi again. My appeal to UP government is not to do this and not to increase problems in this difficult hour.”

This led Yogi Adityanath’s media advisor Mrityunjay Kumar to slam the ‘fake news’ and promise that UP government would take action. Raghav Chadha subsequently deleted the fake tweet.

Incidentally, Prashant Patel was the same lawyer who filed a case against the AAP govt who sought the disqualification of 20 AAP MLAs for holding ‘Office of Profit’.

He had said in Jan 2018: “I am very happy that my struggle has paid off. When the appointments were made in March, I felt that something was not right. I read up on the issue and also checked its constitutional validity. After much research, I found the move was unconstitutional and filed a petition with the Presidents’ secretariat.”

In the past, he has filed complaints against Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani for their film PK, filed an intervention in SC against Kanhaiya Kumar’s bail and filed a complaint against former CBFC chief Leela Samson.

A slugfest ensued between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over the issue of movement of migrant workers from Delhi to its borders with Uttar Pradesh.

The slugfest came even as the political parties have over the past few weeks sought to present a united face in combating the challenge posed by COVID-19.

Migrant workers reached Anand Vihar bus terminal in large numbers on Saturday evening and the mandated social distancing norms were not being observed. They have also been going to Ghazipur border.

Political fissures erupted as Delhi party unit chief Manoj Tiwari asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to take steps that migrant workers return to their houses. AAP leader Raghav Chadha targeted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a tweet.

BJP General Secretary (Organisation) BL Santhosh took a veiled dig at AAP government and asked if something was amiss and if somebody was playing mischief.

"Tamilnadu border is only 36 kms from Bengaluru .. Andhra is less than 100 kms from Chennai. No migrant labourers exodus. Why only from Delhi ..? Something amiss here. Is somebody playing mischief ..? The very purpose of #LockDown is getting defeated. IndiaFightsCorona," he said in tweet.

Tiwari said Delhi government had ferried the people to the border.

"Arvind Kejriwal, You have ferried them in DTC buses till the border. Please ensure that every family is given ration for 15 days and are sent back to their places within the city in buses. Otherwise, it will become a big problem," he said.

Chadha alleged that migrant workers were being beaten up in Uttar Pradesh.

"According to sources, Yogiji is getting migrants going from Delhi to UP beaten up. He is saying why did you go to Delhi and you will not be allowed to go to Delhi again. My appeal to UP government is not to do this and not to increase problems in this difficult hour," he said.

A 21-day lockdown was enforced in the country from Tuesday midnight to contain the spread of coronavirus. Migrant workers have been reaching Delhi's border to go their native places.
