The Congress on Wednesday expressed a “sense of satisfaction” over the Muzaffarnagar police filing a chargesheet against BJP president Amit Shah for his alleged “hate speech” during the Lok Sabha election campaign in Uttar Pradesh.

“The matter is sub judice but we have a sense of satisfaction that something that had caused major concern about well being of the people in this country is being pursued under the law and it is going in a satisfactory direction,” senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid said.

He said “everyone” should be “happy” about it but refused to go into the issue further saying it was sub judice.

The case dates back to April 3 when Shah, in a reference to the Muzaffarnagar riots, reportedly told a meeting of Jat leaders that this election was about “badla (revenge) and protecting izzat (honour)”.
