Dutt Served Notice on Jadu ki Jhappi Remark
Of late, Bollywood actor-turned politician and Samajwadi Party General Secretary Sanjay Dutt fell in yet another trouble when he was served a notice by Pratapgarh district authorities for his contentious remark of wishing to give Jadu ki Jhappi to Chief Minister Mayawati.
Pinki Joel, Pratapgarh District Magistrate, has served the notice on Sanjay Dutt, asking him to reply within 24 hours. She has also asked the Superintendent of Police to look into the matter and register a case against the actor if required.
Later, an FIR was lodged against Dutt for his remarks against Mayawati. In less than a week’s time, this is the second FIR against Dutt. A case was previously filed against him for reportedly using communally charged language during an election rally in Mau district.
While addressing an election meeting under Kotwali police station in Pratapgarh Lok Sabha constituency on April 16, the film star, accompanied by another Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh and Independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya had made some objectionable remark on the Chief Minister.
This would be the second time when the Bollywood star was involved in a controversy during electioneering in the state.
On April 14, a criminal case under section 171(H) of the IPC was registered against him at Dakshintola police station in Mau district for making a communal remark during an election meeting.
Sanjay had said that he was implicated in the Mumbai blast case only because his mother was a Muslim.
