The district Court told police to register an FIR under Section 505 (false statement circulated with intent to cause mutiny or offence against public peace) and Section 124 (a) (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code against Jaitley.

AS per the Hindu report, the civil Judge Ankit Goel also summoned the Finance Minister for a hearing on November 19.

The Mahoba district Court maintained that Union Minister's statement on Facebook was an ‘anti-national act'.

"The Indian democracy cannot be a tyranny of the unelected and if the elected are undermined, democracy itself would be in danger",

Reacting to Apex Court's judgment striking down NJAC, the Union Minister had said, "The Indian democracy cannot be a tyranny of the unelected and if the elected are undermined, democracy itself would be in danger".
