A police complaint has been filed against Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi on June 23, 2019, for posting a picture in which Army’s Dog unit can be seen performing yoga with their trainers on the International Yoga Day.
The complaint has been lodged by advocate Atal B. Dubey at Azad Maidan police station under Sections 124A and 505(2) of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, for doing public mischief with an intention to disrespect the Army and the International Yoga Day.
In his complaint, the lawyer said that the Congress chief has hurt the sentiments of people across the world by his tweet.
“I say that, Shri Gandhi posted a mischievous post intended to upset the public tranquility. I say that, by putting such type of circulation with intention to disrespect our Army is a clear-cut offence and Shri Rahul Gandhi needs to be prosecuted as per law,” the complaint reads.
“In these circumstances, I beg to approach your good office seeking its kind indulgence for the registration of my grievance and FIR against Shri Rahul Gandhi on the points laid and asserted hereinabove,” it added.
On June 21, 2019, Mr. Gandhi tweeted the picture with the caption: ‘New India’, drawing huge criticism.

Home Minister Amit Shah slammed Gandhi for his post by tweeting “Congress stands for negativity. Today, their negativity was seen in their clear support to the medieval practice of triple talaq. Now, they mock Yoga Day and insult our forces (yet again!). Hoping the spirit of positivity will prevail. It can help overcome toughest challenges.”
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also expressed his views on Gandhi’s post saying that the dogs were proud members of the Indian Army and that they contribute to the safety of the nation.
Paresh Rawal also hit out at Gandhi and said, "Yes it’s a NEW INDIA Rahul ji where even dogs are smarter than you."
