Supreme Court Advocate Files Complaint Against Mallikarjun Kharge and Arvind Kejriwal for Provocative Statements on President’s Caste


A Supreme Court advocate, Vineet Jindal, has lodged a complaint against Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and others for allegedly making “provocative” statements regarding the caste of President Droupadi Murmu in connection with the inauguration of the new parliament building on May 28. Jindal accuses these influential political leaders of intentionally mentioning the President’s caste to promote enmity among communities and undermine the duly elected government. Jindal, a law-abiding citizen and practicing lawyer at the Supreme Court of India, submitted the complaint to Sanjay Arora, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Delhi, requesting the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against the accused individuals and strict legal action to be taken.

The complaint highlights the allegedly inflammatory and derogatory remarks made by Kharge and Kejriwal, aiming to insinuate that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the current government deliberately excluded President Murmu from the parliament building’s inauguration. The complainant emphasizes that such statements, which have been widely circulated in news and social media, could incite provocation among the Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Adivasi communities, as the President herself belongs to these communities. Jindal argues that the political leaders should not be allowed to demean the highest constitutional posts for their political gain.

Furthermore, the complaint asserts that these actions could generate fear and mistrust against the duly elected government, constituting offenses under sections 121, 153A, 505, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, which are cognizable and serious in nature. The complaint by Vineet Jindal brings attention to the need for responsible discourse and the avoidance of caste-based references by political leaders. The case will now be investigated by the Delhi Police, who will determine the appropriate course of legal action based on the evidence and testimonies presented.
