Mysuru: FIR against BJP MP Pratap Simha


Mysuru, Dec 27 (UNI)- An FIR has been filed against BJP MP Pratap Simha with city police for allegedly insulting Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by calling him ‘Somaari Sidda’ (Lazy Sidda) in an interaction with media during Hanuman Jayanti.

The FIR was registered based on a complaint by Congress leader BJ Vijayakumar. The BJP MP was booked under sections 504 and 153 of the Indian Penal Code.

“With this statement (Somaari Sidda) and also by making similar baseless allegations constantly, accusing the CM of caste politics, Pratap Simha is hampering the charisma of CM,” the complaint copy stated.

Vijayakumar also complained about Simha challenging Siddaramaiah to hold a public debate on his contributions to Mysuru city and district.

The Congress leader further complained that Simha made baseless allegations against Siddaramaiah of wreaking hatred between different communities.

“Pratap Simha is also trying to provoke communal chaos between Hindu and Muslim communities, and hamper public peace ahead of Lok Sabha election,” he alleged.
