Bhopal: Congressmen led by Bhopal Lok Sabha candidate PC Sharma filed a complaint against yoga guru Ramdev on Monday for making allegedly derogatory statements against Dalits and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

Before filing the complaint, Congressmen took out a march from Rajiv Gandhi Square in protest against Ramdev.

They demanded registration of an FIR against Ramdev under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the SC/ST Act.
When the police told them that it would probe the complaint before filing an FIR, agitated Congressmen set fire to Ramdev`s effigy in protest.
Sharma alleged that Ramdev has insulted the entire Dalit community by making such a statement against them and Rahul Gandhi.

He warned that if the police failed to register an FIR against Ramdev, then the Congress would intensify its agitation on the issue.
