The statement is reprehensible and a cognizable offense
The complaint further states that it is highly condemnable to make such statements on the part of influential political leaders against the elected government to create enmity between communities and groups on the basis of caste.

Along with this, his statement will not only create mistrust against the elected government, but will also create an atmosphere of fear in the communities, which is a serious offense under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and is very serious in nature.
