The Madhya Pradesh Police has registered an FIR against BJP minister and the party’s candidate from Anuppur seat Bisahulal Singh for making derogatory remarks against the Congress candidate’s wife.

The minister referred to the wife of Congress’ candidate from Anuppur Vishwanath Singh Kunjan as a ‘rakhail’ (‘kept’ woman). As the video of his derogatory statement went viral, Kunjan filed a complaint before the Anuppur police. The police registered an FIR against the BJP minister on Tuesday under Section 294 and 506 of the IPC.

Kunjam’s first wife had reportedly died and he is currently living with his second wife. In the affidavit filed before the Election Commission with the nomination form, the Congress leader had written the name of his second wife, against whom the minister made the offensive remark.

The Congress has also complained to the Election Commission over Bisahulal Singh’s derogatory remark on Tuesday, following which Anuppur district election commission office sent a notice to the BJP and sought a reply within 24 hours.

Taking cognisance of the issue, the State Women Commission too has sent a notice to the BJP minister and sought his reply.

In another video, Bisahulal Singh can be heard threatening former Anuppur Congress chief Jayaprakash Aggrawal. “3 November ke baad jo uski durdasha karuga wo koi nahi kar sakta. Mai use raste me lay aauga,” he said.

The Congress has reported this also to the Election Commission.
