Plea in court against Cong leaders to save BJP's 'PAK': Shergil
Plea in court against Cong leaders to save BJP's 'PAK': Shergil

New Delhi, Feb 28 (TIWN) The Congress on Friday reacted sharply to the plea in court seeking registration of an FIR against Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for alleged hate speeches. It said the plea was to save BJP leaders Pravesh Verma, Anurag Thakur and Kapil Mishra, referring to the trio as "PAK".

Congress leader Jaiveer Shergil told IANS, "It is a political interest litigation to hide the failure of the government and to put a lid on the BJP''s involvement in fuelling the fire in Delhi riots.

"This is to hide and save BJP''s PAK -- Pravesh, Anurag and Kapil," said Shergil.

The BJP has two parameters, the laws for the common man and citizens of the country are different from those for the BJP leaders, added Shergil.

The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notices on a plea for the registration of an FIR against Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and others on charges of delivering hate speeches.

The Congress said that the PIL was politically motivated and the inaction on the hate speeches made by the BJP leaders, which led to the riots, was shocking.

"When there are 48 cases registered, why three cases against the BJP leaders are not registered," asked Shergil.

A Bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel sought responses from the Central and Delhi governments apart from Delhi Police on a petition filed by Lawyers Voice. The matter will again be heard on April 13.

The plea also sought a case against Aam Aadmi Party leaders Manish Sisodia and Amanatullah Khan, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leaders Akbaruddin Owaisi and Waris Pathan, and lawyer Mehmood Paracha.
