The Himachal Pradesh BJP Tuesday filed a complaint with the state’s chief electoral officer against Chief Minister Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu’s statement on Devinder Kumar Bhutto, its candidate for the Kutlehar assembly bypoll.


Bhutto is among the six Congress rebels who voted in favour of the BJP’s nominee in the Rajya Sabha elections held on February 27. These MLAs were disqualified by the Speaker for defying a whip to be present in the House and vote in favour of the government during the cut motion and budget.

In its two-page complaint, the BJP alleged that Sukhu made the remark “Bhutto ko Kootto (beat Bhutto)” while addressing a gathering in Kutlehar on April 6 which is highly derogatory and offensive.
