Two complaints were filed against Union Minister Giriraj Singhtoday by Congress workers separately at two places for his racist barb against Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

One complaint was filed at Muzaffarpur while the other was submitted at Darbhanga.

In Muzaffarpur, Sanjay Kumar Singh filed a complaint against Giriraj Singh in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Ved Prakash Singh, who transferred the case to the court of Sub-Divisional Judicial Magistrate Anju Singh.

The SDJM directed Mithanpura police station to register a case against the minister on the basis of the complaint, Sumit Kumar, lawyer of the petitioner, said.

The SDJM gave the order to Mithanpura police station under Section 166 of IPC (public servant disobeying law with intent to cause injury to any person).

The complainant, a resident of Miscote colony of Muzaffarpur, said in the petition that after reading a news report about the racist remark about Sonia Gandhi, he was pained.

The Union minister had asked the Congress on Tuesday at Hajipur whether the party would have accepted Sonia Gandhi’s leadership if she were not white-skinned.

Singh had also mocked at Rahul Gandhi’s absence from the political scene and likened it to the “missing Malaysian airliner”.

Another complaint was filed at Darbhanga.

District Congress Vice President Pawan Kumar Chaudhary filed the complaint in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Gyanendra Kumar Shrivastava against Singh.

The complaint was filed under sections 153 B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration), 500 (punishment for defamation) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), complainant lawyer Birendra Kumar Singh said.

The Darbhanga CJM transferred the matter for hearing to First Class Judicial Magistrate Vishal Kumar.

    The Hon’ble Minister ‘s remarks” if she were a Kenyan” is a most ungentlemanly ,unchivalorous jibe one could have made, Kenya is a friendly country – One of the major 54 countries of the African Continent. Our Country has been privileged and honoured to receive a great number of Kenyan citizens in our Universities and else where. The plague of Caste Colour and creed was resolutely eradicated by one of the greatest son of our country namely Mahatma Gandhi who spent good many years in South Africa and fought a relentless battle against apartheid and colour discrimination.Our Constitution accepts of no discrimination on the basis of Caste, Colour, creed, place of birth or anything of the kind. Quite a good number of us Indians have a darker shade of skin than our Kenyan brothers.

    The HON’Ble Minister’s uncalled for and irresponsible remarks impacting on the Leader of the National Opposition Party and our Kenyan brothers can in no way – in no way be accepted or justified on any account.
    The remarks are all the more unfortunate as the then Late Prime Minister is not here to take on the likes of the instant Hon’ble Minister

    I feel extremely sad about the whole issue. There is a huge number of issues on which political, electoral battles may be conducted but attacking a lady who , whatever be her political ideology, holds a high place in the Indian polity
