Raipur: The state police has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel’s father for his comments on boycotting Brahmins.The Chief Minister’s father, Nand Kumar Baghel, had recently made the comments in Uttar Pradesh.
The senior Baghel had said, “I am urging all the villagers of India to not let the Brahmins enter your villages. I will talk to every other community so that we can boycott them. They need to be sent back to the bank of the Volga River.” The DD Nagar police registered an FIR late Saturday night against Nand Kumar Baghel, following a complaint filed by the ”Sarv Brahmin Samaj”, under Section 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups) and 505 (1) (b) (intent to cause alarm) of the Indian Penal Code.
Law is supreme and his government stands for all, underscored by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. Chief Minister Baghel said, “No one is above the law, even if that person is my 86-year-old father. The Chhattisgarh government respects every religion, sect, community and their feelings. The comment against a particular community by my father, Nand Kumar Baghel, has disturbed the communal peace. I am also saddened by his statement.”
The Chief Minister added, “Our political views and beliefs are distinctly different. As a son, I respect him but as the Chief Minister I cannot excuse his mistake which has the potential to disturb the public order.”
