Panaji: BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi should be booked for sedition for calling Defence Minister A.K. Antony a Pakistani agent, Congress leader Shantaram Naik said Thursday.
Naik, a Rajya Sabha MP and All India Congress Committee secretary in-charge of Karnataka, said in a statement that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has "politically killed" senior party leaders in order to fulfil the Gujarat chief minister's dream of becoming the prime minister.
"Modi's statement constitutes an offence of sedition under the Indian Penal Code and hence an FIR should be registered against him and investigation should be ordered," said Naik.
Modi allegedly made the remark while campaigning in Jammu and Kashmir.
