Madhya Pradesh's Congress leader and former minister Raja Pateriya is in headlines for his controversial speech about PM Modi. An FIR has been registered against him. The matter is heading towards political angle. Panna police arrested him on Tuesday morning from Pateria's residence at Hata in Damoh district. Yesterday, after his statement came to the fore, an FIR was registered in Powai, Panna. At present, the police has left for Panna with them.
After the statement given by Raja Pateria in this matter, BJP workers had also burnt the effigy while protesting and raising slogans against him. At the same time, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had also given instructions to take strict action in this matter. Raja Patria, in his clarification after the video was aired in this matter, had said that his statement had been distorted.
