The heavy criticism against Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath and Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has landed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state unit spokesman Rahul Kothari in a legal row. The case was registered after Congress Secretary Rakesh Yadav lodged a complaint against Kothari in Vijay Nagar police station on Monday. Yadav, in his complaint, said: "Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha's national Vice President and party's state spokesman Rahul Kothari has made a derogatory comment in his tweet".
Reacting to the complaint, Kothari tweeted: "The case against me by the Congress is an evidence of undeclared emergency in the state". The Indore Police have already registered a case against Rahul Kothari for allegedly making derogatory comments against Congress leaders including Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath. Rahul Kothari had uploaded a picture on Twitter with the caption, "Scindia taking Kamalnath for immersion", the police said.
