Amit Shah had landed in a major controversy for allegedly saying that the 2014 Lok Sabha polls were an opportunity to seek revenge for the insult inflicted during the riots in Muzaffarnagar in UP last year

 

Amit Shah, the president of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday was chargesheeted by the police for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct by delivering an "objectionable" speech during campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh.

 

The charge sheet was filed against 49-year-old Shah in a court at Muzaffarnagar for allegedly seeking votes on the grounds of religion, race, caste and community.

 

The Deputy SP of New Mandi Circle, Yogender Singh, said the charge sheet has been filed under various sections of IPC, including 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, etc.), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class) and 505 (false statement, rumour, etc. circulated with intent to cause mutiny or offence against the public peace), and Section 123-3 of Representation of People Act (making an appeal to vote on the grounds of religion amounting to corrupt practice).

 

Police had registered a case against Shah for allegedly violating the model code following a direction from the Election Commission, which had also banned him from campaigning in the state on 4 April 2014.

 

The FIR was lodged against Shah in New Mandi police station by a district official and the case was handed over to Sub-Inspector BL Shah for investigation.

 

Shah had landed in a major controversy for allegedly saying that the 2014 Lok Sabha polls were an opportunity to seek "revenge for the insult" inflicted during the riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh last year.

 

Taking note of the "revenge" remark by Shah, the EC had issued a notice to him for prima facie violation of the model code. Shah had denied having violated the model code and asked EC to reconsider its notice to him claiming that the remarks were not recorded in the right perspective. The ban on him was later lifted.

Amit Shah & NaMo are expert manipulators. When they were in a very tight soup in Gujarat during last decade they converted successfully their misfortunes into jack pot lotteries.They manipulated words,central grants, speeches of RaGa-SoGa,scripts by film writers,Mani aiyer's comments,laws,courts and proceedings of courts,court orders into a scenario best suitable to them. They manipulated ouster of Gopal Subramaniam from the Supreme Court of India in a very systematic plan. They are expert in art of survival. They cut down everybody with the capacity to oppose. The last to be sized was RajNath Singh. Now Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj have days of worries. The present UP chargesheet is a trash for for them.
There is hardly anybody even in media who can stand erect against them.One look at the list of judges is enough for sadness. No judge will dare to rule against their ultimate wishes and desires.
Then who is their master?
First is God and second and last is a poor VOTER .
