Congress files complaint against Shiv Sena for 'insulting' Pranab Mukherjee


Mumbai, Oct 22: The state unit of Congress today filed a complaint against Shiv Sena for "insulting" President Pranab Mukherjee through an "objectionable" poster, which claimed that he "bowed" before the late saffron party supremo Bal Thackeray.

A delegation of Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), led by party legislator Bhai Jagtap lodged the complaint at the Shivaji Park Police Station.

"The objectionable write up on the poster was close to the President's picture. Mukherjee had visited Thackeray during the Presidential election campaign. In keeping with Indian culture and tradition, Mukherjee folded his hands on meeting Thackeray.

But, a write up on the poster says the President bowed before him," the complaint said.

Congress has accused the Sena of using the poster showing the President, who is the constitutional head of the country, for "political mudslinging".

"This is a serious matter," the party said.

The poster which was put up at Sena Bhavan in Dadar by the Shiv Sena's East Mumbai unit, also showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi bowing reverentially before Thackeray.
