Jaadu ki Jhappi & Pappi lands Dutt in trouble

April 18, 2009 12:15 IST

In fresh trouble for Samajwadi Party general secretary and actor Sanjay Dutt, the Pratapgarh District Magistrate has slapped a notice on him for his alleged objectionable remarks against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati.

"We have issued a notice to the SP General Secretary Sanjay Dutt for violating the model code of conduct by his objectionable remarks against the Chief Minister during a rally held in Pratapgarh on March 17," Pratapgarh District Magistrate Pinky Jowal told PTI on Saturday.

Dutt, during an election rally held at KP Hindu College in support of SP candidate Akshay Pratap Singh Gopal, had allegedly said that he will "give jaadu ki jhappi and pappi' (magical hug and kiss) to the people of Pratapgarh, and given a chance he will do the same with the BSP supreme Mayawati".

"His statement goes against any woman," the District Magistrate said.

Meanwhile, BSP workers in Pratapgarh have lodged a complaint with Kotwali police station in this regard. Earlier, on April 14 an FIR was lodged against Dutt for making communal remarks during an election rally in Mau district.

Dutt, who was campaigning in support of the party nominee Arshad Jamal Ansari, had allegedly said: Jab mai police custody me tha to police wale mujhe third degree dete

the.. woh mujhe marte the aur kehte the ki tumhari maa musalman hai. (When I was in police custody, I was given third degree because I am the son of a Muslim woman).

SP nominee from Mau seat Arshad Jamal was also named in the FIR.
