Confirming about the same a senior police official said that a complaint against MoS has been filed but the police is examining whether it qualifies to be converted into an FIR.

The advocate, Rajiv Kumar Bhola, who filed the complaint said that the politicians are increasingly using abusive languages and there is no control over them. Necessary action should be taken against them for hurting public sentiments.

Bhola has demanded that police should register the case under sections 153 (A), section 295 and 500 IPC.

Meanwhile, the Opposition has been demanded the Sadhvi's resignation for her controversial speech. Soon after both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha met on Wednesday, Opposition members created uproar over Jyoti's remarks and demanded that she should be sacked.

On Tuesday, she regretted her use of unparliamentary language in the Lok Sabha saying, "I didn't have any ill intention. But whatever words that I spoke, I express my deep regret and I accept what I said."

Even this failed to satisfy the agitated members as they continued to create uproar demanding apology from the Prime Minister as well.

Meanwhile, condemning comments made by Sadhvi Jyoti, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked party MPs to abstain from addressing the nation.

At the parliamentary board meeting held ahead of Parliament Session on Tuesday, Modi asked the MPs to avoid making uncalled for statements.

At an election rally in Delhi on Monday, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti had said, "People of Delhi have to decide if they want a Government of Ramzaadon (followers of Ram) or a Government of those who are illegitimate."
