Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers on Sunday, 26 May, filed a complaint with police in Mumbai against a Congress activist for allegedly posting a ‘derogatory’ meme on a private messaging platform, an official said.

According to the complaint, a Congress functionary uploaded a meme on local WhatsApp groups, depicting a dog 'Motiji' pooping and a man next to time dubbed 'bhakt'.

Some BJP activists from Sion-Koliwada area objected to the post and asked the Congress worker to delete it and tender an apology, the saffron party’s local leader Alvin Das said.

However, when the post was not deleted, the BJP workers submitted a complaint at the Antop Hill police station.

"We have received an application from BJP supporters. We will seek a legal opinion on it and action will be taken accordingly. An inquiry is on in the matter," Antop Hill police station's senior inspector Rajiv Wavhal said.
