In a written complaint, the BJP accused Raj Babbar of allegedly using derogatory words and making personal comments against PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. The BJP has also demanded strict action in the matter.
On Thursday, while addressing a rally at Udaipur in Rajasthan, Babbar had said that two people from Gujarat are operating a gang which aims at killing the poor people.
Speaking at the rally Babbar said, “In the neighbouring state of Gujarat there are two people who are running a gang to kill the poor people. One of the gangster is the chief of a party, the other gangster cheated the people of the country and is currently occupying a high position in the country.”
Earlier on November 23, in a rally at Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, Raj Babbar said, “He used to say that the Indian rupee has fallen so much against the dollar that it was nearing the age of the then prime minister. Today, the rupee’s valuation has dropped so much that it is inching closer to your beloved mother’s age.”
The elections in Rajasthan will be conducted on December 7 and counting is scheduled to be held on December 11.
