Indian Youth Congress president BV Srinivas arrived in Guwahati to appear before the Guwahati Police in connection with the case filed against him by Angkita Dutta, former President of Assam Youth Congress, alleging harassment and gender discrimination. The security measures were tightened at the Guwahati Airport, and prohibitory orders have been imposed in the city to ensure public safety and the normal functioning of offices.
The Supreme Court granted BV Srinivas interim protection from arrest in the harassment case. Angkita Dutta, the former chief of the youth wing of the party in Assam, accused Srinivas BV of persistent harassment. She filed a police complaint at the Dispur Police Station in Guwahati, alleging that Srinivas had been harassing her based on her gender for nearly six months. Dutta claimed that Srinivas made sexist comments and threatened her with dire consequences if she reported his behavior.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) has expelled Dutta from the party’s primary membership for six years, citing “anti-party activities.” In her complaint, Dutta accused IYC National President Srinivas BV of persistently harassing her and making sexist comments over the past six months. She expressed disappointment with senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for not taking action against Srinivas BV despite being aware of the matter for several months.
The Congress has dismissed the charges, labeling them as politically motivated.
