FIR filed against Baghel’s father for ‘derogatory’ Brahmin remark

RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh Police on Sunday registered an FIR against the father of chief minister Bhupesh Baghel for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Brahmins.
“It has come to my notice that my father Nandkumar Baghel made certain remarks against a section of society. I’m sad that these remarks have hurt the sentiments of this community besides causing damage to social harmony,” the CM said on Sunday.
“My political thoughts and beliefs are different from my father’s. As his son, I respect him but as the CM, I cannot forgive his remarks or mistakes that could disturb social harmony,” he said, adding: “Nobody is above the law, not even my 86-year-old father. Police will ensure appropriate legal action.”
He further said, “The Chhattisgarh government respects and honours the feelings of all castes, religions and communities.” He said he came to know about talk on social media that action is not being taken against Nandkumar because he is the CM’s father.
Deen Dayal Nagar police station here took cognizance of a complaint filed by Brahmin Samaj and registered a case against Nandkumar Baghel under the IPC. Nandkumar, known for voicing his views on pro-OBC politics, made the remarks during a visit to Lucknow a couple of days ago.
