The development comes a day after Congress suspended Mani Shankar Aiyar from the primary membership of the party for bringing disrepute to political discourse by referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as 'neech aadmi'.
GVL Narasimha Rao, in a tweet on Dec 5, said : "Rahul Gandhi has teamed up with Owaisis, Jilanis to oppose Ram temple in Ayodhya. Rahul Gandhi is certainly a "Babar Bhakt" & a "Kin of Khilji". Babar destroyed Ram temple & Khilji plundered Somnath. Nehru dynasty sided with both Islamic invaders.Travesty & Perversity of dynasty!"
Nirupam said the Gandhi family is one of the most "prestigious" families in the country and its members had sacrificed their lives for the nation.
"Two have already given up their lives for the country while Nehru ji spent more than 20 years in jail. Looking at this background, the family is being defamed only to vitiate the atmosphere in the nation and bring up communal issues ahead of Gujarat polls," Nirupam told reporters here.
He demanded that action should be taken against Rao for violation of section 66A of the IT Act.
Nirupam said that Rao should be arrested and his social media account should be blocked.
In his letter to Mumbai police, he wrote, "I request you to take action against Mr Rao of the BJP for his malicious tweet that was posted with the intent of causing defamation as well as promoting enmity and creating an atmosphere of hatred."
