Petition against Bhushan for calling PM `Shikhandi`

Indore: A lawyer here on Thursday filed a petition in a local court seeking registration of a case against Team Anna member Prashant Bhushan for using the word `Shikhandi` for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Stating that the use of the word lowered the dignity of not only the prime minister`s office but the entire democratic system, advocate Inderjit Singh Bhatia, in his petition filed with the first class judicial magistrate, demanded that Bhushan be tried for "treason and for hurting the religious feelings of the Sikhs".
The petition will be heard on July 12.

Criticising the Prime Minister for defending the UPA government on corruption charges, Bhushan had said last week, "The Congress is using the PM as a shield like `Shikhandi`. They say he is clean, so his Cabinet must be clean. Why is the PM allowing himself to be used like `Shikhandi` in this manner," he said.

Bhushan had later denied using the word while referring to the Prime Minister.
