Police arrested Pateria from his house in Panna after an FIR was registered against the Congress leader
Madhya Pradesh : Senior Madhya Pradesh Congress leader Raja Pateria was arrested from his house in Panna district in Madhya Pradesh for triggering a controversy after he called on people to ‘kill’ Modi to save the constitution and future of minorities and Dalits while addressing party workers at a meeting in Panna’s Pawai Tehsil.
On Tuesday morning, the police arrested Pateria from his house in Panna after an FIR was registered against the Congress leader. While the BJP lashed out at the party, Pateria claimed he had been misunderstood. The Congress has sent him a show-cause notice.
Speaking to a group of workers on Sunday, Pateria can be heard in a video saying, “Any pressure from the government or administration needs to be resisted. I know him (district Congress chief) since he was the president of the Youth Congress. If he has taken your guarantee, he will not back down. I am repeating what I had said yesterday, that Modi will finish the elections. He will divide along the lines of religion, caste, and language. The lives of minorities, Dalits and Vanvasis (tribals) are in danger. If we have to save the Constitution, you have to be ready to kill Modi. Hatya (murder) in the sense harane ka kaam karo (work to defeat him) .”
