Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: Alleging a smear campaign against Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on social media by the RSS and the BJP, the party’s women’s wing Monday filed a complaint with the Delhi Police, demanding action against those behind it.

All India Mahila Congress president Sushmita Dev and Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress president Sharmistha Mukherjee said the complaint was filed against “unknown persons” for “spreading distasteful and offensive tweets/pictures” of Vadra at the Parliament Street police station.

“We have filed a complaint at Parliament police station along with some evidences (sic). We know that the BJP and RSS are behind this but we want police to investigate and uncover the truth and to put accused persons behind bars,” Dev said. She added that the social media campaign has been started against Vadra from the day she had joined politics.

Last month, Priyanka Vadra was named the AICC general secretary of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

“The BJP has gone berserk after she (Vadra) became the general secretary of the AICC in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh and they had done the same in past with Rahul Gandhi. We have asked our party members to file the case against this in every state across India,” Dev added.

The complaint outlines charges amounting to offences like defamation, sexual harassment and sections of the IT Act. Screenshots of ‘offensive’ tweets and pictures have been attached along with the complaint.

Mahila Congress’ Rajasthan unit protested in Jaipur and handed over a complaint to Jaipur police commissioner Anand Srivastava.

That Priyanka Vadra ‘suffers from bipolar disorder’ not offensive?

Curiously, the INC has not taken legal recourse against BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy’s allegation made on 27 January that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra suffered from bipolar disorder and that she beat up people.

Then Swamy equated it with the controversy raked up about the wife of Prime Minister Narendra Modi by his detractors.

At that point, some Twitter users had hit back, saying Swamy and his ilk did not even know the difference between bipolar disorder and bipolarity.
