Ranchi: A social activist Wednesday lodged a
complaint case with a local court here against Union Home
Minister P Chidambaram in connection with his remarks on
migrants, which have already been clarified by the minister.

Ranchi-based social activist Asish Kumar Singh filed
the complaint case with the chief judicial magistrate court of
Vijay Kumar accusing the Home Minister of promoting hatred on
the ground of region, religion and language.

He lodged the complaint under IPC sections 153-A
(promoting enmity between classes) and 505 (False statement,
rumour with intent to cause mutiny or offence against public
peace).

Soon after Chidambaram had on December 13 sought to blame migrants coming to Delhi for the increase in crime, he
issued a clarification saying he did not refer to any state or
region or language or race or religion and was conscious that
every one who came to work in Delhi was, in a sense, a
migrant, including himself.

Asish Kumar Singh had also earlier lodged complaint
cases against AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi and writer
Arundhati Roy for their controversial statements.
