Bengaluru : Dalit leader and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mewani has been booked for allegedly making provocative remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an event in Chitradurga, about 200 kms from here, police said.

Designated ‘flying squad officer’ on election duty of Chitradurga Assembly Constituency, T Jayanth, alleged that Mewani had made the remarks against Modi, while addressing a gathering at an event in Chitradurga last evening.

“The role of youth is important today. When Modi Ji arrives at Bengaluru on April 15 to address a public gathering you mingle with the crowd, throw the chairs in the air and disturb his meeting,” Mewani had allegedly said according to the complaint.

“You ask him what happened to the promise of two crore jobs every year. If he fails to give any answer, then tell him to go sleep in Himalaya or ring the Rama Temple bells,” he had said.
