New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday filed a "sedition" complaint against Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao for their comments on the armed forces.

In a letter to the IP Estate Police Station, AAP's Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey alleged their comments are not only "contemptuous", but a deliberate attempt to bring disaffection towards the armed forces.

 

On October 1, at an event in Dehradun, Parrikar had made a reference to the Ramayana in which Hanuman crossed an ocean in a single stride after he was reminded of his extraordinary powers by Jamwant.

"Indian troops were like Hanuman who did not quite know their prowess before the surgical strikes," Parrikar had said.

The party had yesterday said Rao had claimed that for the first time the army has been made aware of its capability and by saying this, he was demeaning the military and its sacrifice.

The party's youth wing also organised a "prayer service" at Jantar Mantar so that "good sense" prevails on the BJP leaders.
