Jaipur, Feb 20 (IANS) The Congress in Rajasthan on Saturday submitted an application to police superintendents in all district headquarters demanding filing of a police complaint and the arrest of BJP legislator Kailash Chaudhary for his “traitor” remark against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
Chaudhary, the BJP legislator from Baytoo constituency in Barmer district, while addressing a farmers rally on Wednesday said Gandhi stood with people who made anti-India and pro-Pakistan slogans, and was thus an “anti-national and traitor”, who “should be punished, hanged and shot”.
He also said such people “should be thrown out of the country” and they do not have any right to live in India.
Members of the Congress on Saturday submitted an application to superintendents of police in all district headquarters of the state demanding filing of an FIR against the BJP leader.
State Congress president Sachin Pilot said Chaudhary should be arrested immediately, and also demanded immediate sacking of the leader by the BJP.
