Uma Bharti files police complaint against PM, Sonia, Karuna

September 22, 2007 16:52 IST

Firebrand saffron leader Uma Bharti on Saturday filed a police complaint in Delhi against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief Karunanidhi and some others for allegedly hurting the sentiments of the Hindu community on the Ram Sethu issue.

In the complaint filed at the Parliament Street police station, she demanded action against Law Minister H R Bharadwaj, Culture Minister Ambika Soni and Shipping Minister T R Baalu.

The Bharatiya Janshakti Party leader sought action against Dr Singh, Sonia and his Cabinet colleagues Bharadwaj, Soni and Baalu in connection with the controversial Ram Sethu affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, saying the "sentences and words" in the document hurt the sentiments of Hindus.

Bharti, in the complaint, said Karunanidhi, "by terming the existence of Lord Ram a lie and using insulting language for him" had hurt the sensitivity of the community.

"I am a Hindu and my sentiments have been hurt. That is why I have filed the complaint," Bharti told PTI.

"We have given a notice of 15 days. We want action within 15 days or we will gherao the home minister," she said.
