Lucknow: Just hours after Congress social media chief Divya Spandana was booked under sedition charges for insulting Modi and calling him a ‘chor’, she is yet again slapped with another complaint against her.
“To the folks who filed the FIR – #PMChorHai,” Spandana had tweeted for which she was booked under sedition charges and a case was registered against her on Tuesday at Gomtinagar Police Station.
Thank you guys for extending your support and for those who didn’t like the tweet, well, what can I say? Will keep it ‘classy’ next time 😊
India should do away with the sedition law, it’s archaic and misused.
To the folks who filed the FIR- #PMChorHai 🤭😀
