Sanju Baba (Sanjay Dutt) invites trouble after offering "jaadu ki pappi"

Samajwadi Party (SP) leader and film star Sanjay Dutt is in trouble over his obsession with "Gandhigiri".

A case has been registered against him in Pratapgarh district of UP for passing sexist remarks against UP CM Mayawati at an election meeting recently.

A case under section 294 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was lodged at the Kotwali police station in Pratapgarh on Saturday. The section deals with obscene language used to the annoyance of someone, and prescribes imprisonment upto three months or fine or both.

Dutt was campaigning for SP candidate and outgoing MP Akshay Pratap Singh when he apparently got carried away as he waxed eloquent on his favourite theme -- "Gandhigiri".

"I have come here to do 'Gandhigiri'... I have come to give 'jaadu ki jhappi' (magical hug)... to give 'pappi' (kiss)... I will give both to Mayawati, 'jaadu ki jhappi' and 'pappi'..." Sanjay Dutt said at the election meeting on Thursday. Samajwadi Party leadersAmar Singh and Jaya Bachchan were also present on the stage when he spoke.

The Pratapgarh District Magistrate (DM) Pinki Joyal was quick to take cognisance of the slip of tongue as soon as the speech was aired on news channels. A notice has been issued to Dutt to explain his situation within 24 hours and a case has also been registered against him.

This is the second case against the junior Dutt within a week. On Tuesday, he had created a furore in Mau by alleging at an election rally that police had tortured him after being arrested in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case because his mother (Nargis) was a Muslim.

Meanwhile, a case has been registered in a Mau police station against Sanjay Dutt and party candidate Arshad Jamal. They have been charged with inciting communal feelings under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Representation of the People Act. The state Election Commission is conducting an inquiry into the matter.


  1. In my opinion, Sanjay Dutt is a better actor than a politician...we need a "politically" qualified candidate up there in the government. "Change" is the key.

    Nice post.
