BENGALURU: The Karnataka High Court has expressed its displeasure against the use of abusive language by BJP Uttara Kannada MP Ananthkumar Hegde against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah stating that a person holding a constitutional post should not be disrespected.

A bench of Justice Krishna Dixit, which was hearing Ananthkumar Hegde’s plea to quash the FIR against him, said Siddaramaiah is the Chief Minister and should be accorded respect. It is everyone’s responsibility to respect the post of Prime Minister and Chief Minister.

The bench further advised the lawyers representing Hegde that one may disagree or oppose the policies in a democratic setup, but should avoid abusive language. While directing the authorities not to take any precipitative action against the MP, the court posted the plea for further hearing at a later date.
