An NGO, which works for the rights of differently-abled people, lodged a complaint against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his alleged derogatory remarks on dyslexia, at the Saidapet police station on Wednesday.

According to The New Indian Express report, PS Bharathi, vice-president of Tamil Nadu Association for the Rights of All Types of Differently-Abled and Caregivers lodged the complaint. He criticised Modi for using dyslexia as a tool for political interests. “For taking a dig at a political rival, the prime minister has insulted the whole differently-abled community which has caused them immense grief,” said the petition.

Meanwhile, a source in Saidapet police station said no case has been filed on the complaint. The police told NGO members that they will proceed after taking a legal opinion on whether the police station has jurisdiction or authority to file or probe such a case against Prime Minister.
